Re: how to I read this web page?

I'm going to guess there's a javascript thing in there somewhere that
fiddles with the contents of the span tags "filename", "size" and

<span class="info">Filename: <span class="filename"></span></span> |
<span class="info"> File size: <span class="size"></span></span> |
<span class="info"> Version: <span class="version"></span></span>

You'll need to download the javascript files to locate the functions that
do that. After that, it depends where it gets its information from. It
may be more effort than it's worth to dissect the page.
