HyperDocTools.Fetch "http://carnot.pathology.ubc.ca/" => carnot.html ~
Or if you want to get and open it just do MM on the "http//:.."
So I'm not sure what your question is ...
BTW, you also could use WebDAV: DCT.Get ... :-)

AFAIK that's not a question of Oberon but server and protocol policy.
With a HTTP server you aren't expected to get a directory listing normally.
If the server is giving it to you it's his decision.
OTOH with a WebDAV server a PROPFIND with depth>0 should give you a directory
