Not really, if you try to ask for "show-sequenceFeatures" instead of
"entries"(default). Then you get only the sequence of the feature. It will
happen if, after getting the list of hits you ask for "complete entries". If on
the search page you have asked for SequenceFeature that you will get features

I think that if you save it in the GCG format, you will get it the right way. I
have encountered another problem here. I do the search, get a result, ask-List
entries and I get a list. BUT, if I want to see antry I get an empty page. Also
if I try to copy the set I get an empty file
