Safari Password Recovery - I want to recover login information from a site I used on Safari on OS X 10.4.

There is a site I would like to be able to access from another machine.
[caveat]I have an old Sawtooth PowerPC, so an OS X upgrade is out of the question.[caveat]
There is a password protected site I used to visit on the Mac, using various versions of Safari under OS 10.4. They will be changing site addresses soon, which breaks the stored credentials. I would like to be able to see the site at the new address, but I suspect the password is stored in a cookie, as I can find nothing about the site using Keychain Access. I would just recover/change the password via the site, but I cannot access my account information, due to the domain change underway, and I no longer have access to the email account I used on the site. Also, it is, ahem, an invite only site, so that's out too.
I've not dug my paws deeply enough into cookies on the Mac to know where to look or much about cookie storage via Safari. I would try XMarks, but it is not available for 10.4.
Any suggestions, oh Mac-savvier group mind?
