I don't like the AutoIt idea. it's too complicated for the user and silent update would not be possible.
so I searched for a better solution. good old batch file should be able to do this stuff. the batch file is started automatically with the windows onboard 'scheduled tasks' periodically. it will start a downloadmanager in silent mode and download the lists. after that the converting stuff is done directly by the batch file. so there is no need to start a browser to do it with JavaScript.
in the end the user would only need to install it once and then never care about it anymore. would not even recognize the update. the downloadmanager and the batch file operate without user interface.
becoming familiar with the batch syntax would need a while.

Not a bad idea: there's no reason why an AutoIt solution can't be automated though, one can equally well write gui-less programs with AutoIt if that is what is called for. All the same: respect to you if you manage to do the job with a batch file - I would personally NOT want to try doing this task without having access to regexp engine and all the other perks of a full scripting language.
