Subject: [Mediawiki-api] How do I get a page without metadata?


Hi all,

I really like your API. I'm wondering how do I get the data in xml format of a page? I've been using wikipedia's example here:, for details, and I can see how to search for pages, get metadata, and other such nifty stuff. But really all I want is the content of a page -- how would I, say, get the English wikipedia data of the page on Albert Einstein in xml format? something I hope!

Thanks for your help!
