Can a script get a value from the web?  (a currency exchange rate)

Post

     I need to record a currency exchange rate every day and then use that rate in the script.

      

     I want a server script to get this exchange rate ("1.3010") from this page, every day and save it in a field.

     http://www.ecb.int/stats/exchange/eurofxref/html/eurofxref-graph-usd.en.html

     I don't know anything about RSS feeds, but the very first 6 characters is what I want from this RSS feed ("1.3010"

http://www.ecb.europa.eu/rss/fxref-usd.html

      

     Basically I want the Filemaker script to surf the web for me and get a number off a website at 6AM.  Is this even possible?
