Is there a resaon you need to do this programmatically, as opposed to simply using Google?

    Google provides oodles of hits, but does not feed back a nice list, which is what I would want in this instance. I suppose if I were willing to click on every link provided by google, and then copy and paste the terms I was looking for into my own list, perhaps a few days from now I might have something close to complete. But that's a few days' work, and I'm lazy. That's why I want to use a little regex to make life easier.
