But he's not "parsing" html at all, all he's doing is extracting a certain pattern. Sounds like what a regex was designed for to me.

    It's a question of whether he should be parsing it instead of using a regex to extract a chunk. I don't know; I'm not working on his project. (And that's why I tossed it in as an afterthought.) TIMTOWTDI, YMMV, etc., etc., and so forth.
