(the example I have you was an Entrez method example, as I thought you
would be more familiar with genbank than embl. But the methods are similar)
OK, most the entries using the EBI SRS server will not work, due to the
symbol you have after the double quotes.
Generally, the method directive should be srswww. Be careful, however,
because it is unclear to me whether the srswww can return multiple
results. The 'entrez' method can.
