When dealing with vendors/publishers for this sort of thing, I do a
screen shot of the page and put it in a Word document so they can see
exactly what we see.  I also copy and  paste the url into the document.
It has happened a few times with our open url resolver that the url
there was different than the url we are supposed to use according to the
publisher or vendor.
