Downloading Yahoo! data

One of the things I like best about Yahoo! Finance is the ability to download data from it to a spreadsheet.  Here's a page of tips on downloading Yahoo! data. As an example, I prepared this table of data from today, showing the lowest Price/Earnings ratio among S&P 500 stocks, based on estimated earnings for this year and the latest quoted price.
