I'm Looking For Pointers How To Construct A Html-Parser, Which Can Be
Configured By Selection Of Elements.

To Clarify: I Want To Parse Stock Notations From The Web. The User Should
Be Able To Select A Site And Then Designate Several Fields Like The Ticker
Symbol, The Order Volume Etc.

Any Comments Welcome.

web sites is pretty ugly, but it's usually easy enough to recognize
the parts you want if you just want to extract data like that. -John]
