Yes, that's what I found strange.

I've just checked using Morningstar and that produces just the details, 
as I was expected.  So, it appears to be a feature of FT, or the way 
it's being accessed.

I think KMM downloads the whole page into a temp file and then does the 
analysis, but usually it just extracts just the detail.  Obviously, it 
finds that but returns the whole bath-full.
