hi there,

can anyone help. I am in the middle of converting a website for a client and his old site displays realtime weather forecast...

Does anybody know of a free xml feed or similar so that i can display weather forecast for 1 city on the site... The city actually in question would be Malaga, Spain

Any help or advice would be really appreciated

Thanks in advance

Ian

Hey thanks... when say do web grabbing... do you mean i have to read the web page and extract info??

Is this easy, do you know of a good tutorial for this?

And what happens if the length of a word changes.. for example...

under clouds it says few, but might change to many .. i.e. different left.... or even "none"....

Thanks once again for your help
