in reply to How would you extract *content* from websites?

One tip: many news sites these days have RSS feeds, if not directly from them, from someone like Yahoo. I'm sure you can get your Reuters through there. An RSS feed is exactly what you want - content without layout.

Anything else, a solution is going to be specific to their site, and only until they change their design. A lot of work. I don't see a way around it.

Good luck!
