Thank you for your help, though I dont really have a problem parsing the HTML,
Its getting it back TO HTML that is causing me the problems. :-)

Thanks though.

    Not to sound facetious, but it doesn't get any easier than: print $token->as_is; in TokeParser and print $tree->as_HTML; in TreeBuilder to put it back into HTML form. Start with the right parser, an HTML specific one, and get better results. Remember HTML is not as rigid in it's formatting as XML which makes it flexible but a real pain to parse at times. Using a specialized parser for HTML has many benefits.

    Peace

      Your right.

      Maybe HTML::TokeParser::Simple is the right tool I need.
      I missed what you were gtting at the first time.
      I am going to go play with it some more.

      Thank you.
