    Question WRT parsing of non-xhtml HTML

    I'm making a XmlHttpRequest to an actual web page inside a WRT widget. The response is not XML, not XHTML but just HTML. I can get it as text, but is there a decent way to parse it so I can extract information from it? Right now, I'm considering custom-tailored regular expressions, but I'd much prefer a DOM-like model. I've also considered using an IFRAME but have not yet explored that path. It seems DOMParser.parseFromString is only for XML.

    Hi Trinition,

    if the HTML you receive is not well-formed, you basically have 2 options:

    1) use regular expressions, as you mention

    2) manually well-form it

    Most of times, the first option is by far the simplest
