Did you mean:
 url = self.BASEURL + "pmid=%d" % (d, ) + "&tag=ntag&type=ge"  ?

Even though this might fix your problem, don't use it.

To encode URLs always use urlencode: http://docs.python.org/library/urllib.html
which is part of the standard library.

Using "+" to concat more than two strings is definitely unpythonic.

Do NOT cross post to multiple lists.
