in reply to Create a dictionary from wikipedia

So what code do you have, and where are you having problems?

If I were going to approach the problem, I'd define "Meaningful Content" in terms of it's characteristics (it appears in a <title> or <subtitle>, it uses a particular CSS strophe, it has an XPATH that looks like ___, etc).

Then, just do it.

    That's the point. Of course I can do everything from scratch using Perl, Python or Java, including trying to understand what is the meaningful content.
    But I kind of thought that there is a solution for this which somebody could share.
