Does the data offer html format rather than zip format for download?
Does anyone have any suggestions on the links?
Thanks everyone very much for any suggesitons

Upon review of the tradingblox link above, it appears (to me) that the data is neither html format nor ‘zip’(?) format.
The data is simply ascii format data . . . as the link clearly specifies, and all contained in a zip file for you to download and extract.
If you are unfamiliar with the ascii format, once again that most handiest of tools, Google, comes to the rescue. Simply type in “ascii formatâ€
