Hi
I haven't done any web work for a while, and my brain has turned to mush.

I want to build a quick and dirty client side  app in D5  to use YAHOO REST services to do a web query

The relevant specs are at
http://developer.yahoo.com/search/web/V1/webSearch.html
and the sample request is .

Sample Request Url: http://search.yahooapis.com/WebSearchService/V1/webSearch?appid=YahooDemo&query=madonna&results=2

the results come back in an xml like format in the browser.

My question is simple.. what components do I need for sending the http request, and how do I grab the results (to put them in a Tmeo or somesuch). (I am not concerned with decoding them.. I can get what I need out of them easily)

Thanks
