in reply to Scraping HTML: orthodoxy and reality

OK, you convinced me to use regex instead of a parser for my program. This avoids the problem of re-formatting the parse tree to resemble the original input (I can modify the found lines in-place easily), and I can live with "parser" limitations and simply not write goofy stuff in my HTML.
