I believe the problem is at the FCC's end. The pages (ar2b.hts
and ar4ab.hts) for that report number (43-05) and those data
tables (II.b and IV.ab) should include a section to select a
column, the same as you can select a reporting period, etc. They
don't. Try another table that *has* the column section, and you
shouldn't have any problem. I suspect your success with the
non-windows versions was actually the result of requesting a
different report/table that wasn't missing the column section.
The "#Column", "#Row" and so on just take you to a named, hidden
link within the page, not to a different page. That's if the
named link exists. If it doesn't ("#Row" on these pages, for
example) you can still get there just by scrolling down.
Anyway, there's a chunk missing from those pages, and hence you
might want to contact the ARMIS help address <address@hidden>
I did my checking, and successfully retrieved query results from
non-broken pages, using 2.8.2pre6 on Win95.
