I might suggest also looking at the NCBI Entrez site at
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Entrez/ or batch Entrez at

For example, I used the accession BG938025 and put this into the search
for text area.  I selected nucleotide.  I obtained a hit from the
database, and changed the display from summary to FASTA and then clicked
on the display button.  You can also click on the save button to make a
local copy.

Batch Entrez lets you do basically the same thing, but with a set of
accession numbers.
