I was thinking more from the input side rather than the output side. Tables for example, are quite often used for layout reasons as opposed to delivering tabular data. Throw in the use of colspan and the fact that some cells will contain navigation and other cells will contain content or even nested tables and it becomes somewhat confusing. I was curious as to how these things are treated by the HTML stripper. Or is it a GUI thing, that you highlight certain areas that you want extracted? Brett.
