in reply to html analysis tool via regex

The tool I use most for that sort of work is HTML::TreeBuilder. Which is not the question you asked, but is very likely the answer you seek. Using regexin is not, let me stress it, Is Not the way to extract information from HTML.

One of the best tools youo have to preview the HTML itself is probably the browser that you are using. Most browsers allow you to view the HTML source - for FireFox use Ctrl-U. With IE use the menu entry View|Source.

Perl is Huffman encoded by design.
