No it doesn't, you say so later: it contains a set of bare <HTML></HTML> 
tags. That's not the same as nothing.

This is not your real code.

>>> import urllib2
>>> req  = urllib2.Request(url) // url is valid url
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    req  = urllib2.Request(url) // url is valid url
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

How do you expect us to find bugs in your code when you don't show us 
your real code? Are we supposed to be mind-readers?

Try using the same user-agent string as your C# code uses, and see if the 
server changes what it sends.
