Thanks for the patch. Very interesting, what they've done to try to hide
the data.

Just an idle thought: is it really a good idea for the immir script to
announce itself to ninemsn.com.au so blatantly? It uses the default LWP
UserAgent string, which I believe is "libwww-perl/#.##". You only need
to add half a line to make it mimic Firefox, or IE, or Safari, or
whatever you like. If it did, maybe the hardworking techies at Nine
wouldn't be ordered to waste their time trying to obfuscate web pages.
