Thank you, Christoph! I used twill to get my data. And Titus is really 
helpful in helping me learn how to use it.

Thank Paul, Haiyun and Dennis for your comments! Actually it turned out that 
the authentication code on that web page is kind of a joke. I finally found 
out that you could still submit a successful query and get desired result by 
ignoring the code. In rare cases the code is required. For most of the time 
it's useless. Isn't it funny?

Best,
mxywp
