    I would like to adapt the following NewsRack plug-in applescript to save the .html that is generated to a directory on the hd. Thanks in advance for any help.

    tell application "NewsRack"
    	set article_url to url of selected tab
    	if article_url is "" then
    		display dialog "No article selected." buttons {"OK"}
    	end if
    	if article_url starts with "" then
    		return -- we are already on an Instapaper page
    	end if
    	set encoded_url to escape article_url
    	set instapaper_url to "" & encoded_url
    	if kind of selected tab is "news" then
    		do JavaScript "document.location.href = '" & instapaper_url & "'"
    		set url of selected tab to instapaper_url
    	end if
    end tell
