Thanks, Tyler.
This answers part of the question, but not all, unfortunately.
import urllib
urlobj = urllib.urlopen('http://example/index.html')
   AT THIS POINT, I NEED TO SIMULATE THE CLICKING OF A BUTTON, THEN TO ENTER
DATA ON THE NEXT DISPLAYED PAGE. THEN
   I NEED TO ENTER MORE DATA, CLICK ANOTHER BUTTON BEFORE I CAN GO ON TO DO
THE urlobj.read()

  This is really where I am completey stuck, the simulated clicking of
buttons & entering data. HELLLPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!! (Please !!???!!!)

 html = urlobj.read()
