Reading a variable from a web page ? - Macromedia ColdFusion

I want to read a variable off another web page. I have a Cold Fusion template (testpage.cfm) that presents user with data etc, I want this page to read another web page '/hspider/spider.dll?testscript ' and a pull a variable off the page called Entity. I want this to happen in the background when the user connects to testpage.cfm, i also want to output this to the page #entityvalue#. So all in all I want to grab a value from a webpage and this is to be done in the background. Regards Craig...

    CFHTTP sounds like an appropriate approach here.
