    Hi<br>
    <br>
    the following code <br>
    <blockquote><b>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; import urllib<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; urllib.urlopen(<a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="http://wordsmith.org/words/today.html">"http://wordsmith.org/words/today.html"</a>)<br>
        &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; _.read()<br>
      </b></blockquote>
    yields the output :<br>
    &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br>
    <blockquote><b>&lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML

        &lt;/head&gt;&lt;body&gt;<br>
        &lt;h1&gt;Not Found&lt;/h1&gt;<br>
        &lt;p&gt;The requested URL /words/today.html was not found on
        this server.&lt;/p&gt;<br>

    but when I open the page <a class="moz-txt-link-freetext" href="http://wordsmith.org/words/today.html">http://wordsmith.org/words/today.html</a> in
    the browser, the page is different. My http_proxy environment
    variable is also set. So what could be the reason behind this?<br>
