Is there any reason that you couldn't parse the html returned by the web
server and build a directory entry (from the anchors)?  If this could be
done, it would be a nice feature for those (ie. me) who don't want to
install a webdav server :)  If you're simply trying to navigate a read-only
resource, there is no reason for webdav.

Thanks for the ftp fix!
