The curl question here seems to be how can you mimic what the browser is
sending by using curl. Both Chrome and Firefox have a copy as cURL
feature. Personally I prefer Fiddler [1] which though it does not have
such a feature (? I don't think so) it is easier to examine the data and
you can build your own curl command line.
