I want to have a conversation with a web server as if I were a browser
(e.g. IE). I can read the page I GET at first and parse out the
controls and links.

How do I format the body so when I POST to the <form action... URL,
the web server thinks I am a browser?

How can I handle cookies and other security issues?

TIA
