Sorry, I didn't realise that.  I've just tried it using w3m from cron and that seems to work (although I'm testing on a Solaris box so your milage might vary).  the commandline for w3m is...

w3m -dump http://somesite.com/ > somefile.txt

You can grab w3m from www.rpmfind.net if you have an rpm based distro, theres links to the w3m homepage from there too.
