I would like to fetch a remote web site, alter the contents slightly, and then display the final, altered contents to the end-user. Is this possible, and what would be the best way to go about doing this?

We are running Apache. Is it possible to accomplish this using mod_proxy? It doesn't appear so. What about Squid-Cache?

Any tips you can provide on this topic would be appreciated.

If you want to use Squid, then you will need to look into using ICAP filters for content adaptation.
