in reply to Parsing Cell Contents of Extracted HTML Tables

I can't solve your problem but can tell you that the 'decode' method only toggles the use of HTML::Entities. Look into the 'br_translate' method which translates <br> to \n to eliminate the strange concatenation.

Perhaps you could use the information extracted from the table to reparse the file for links and such.

Check out my Perlmonks Related Scripts like framechat, reputer, and xNN.
