I'm junior Drupal and Java developer. I also play around with Python and some other stuff in my free time.

Thanks, I've been using Beautiful Soup to get the job done. I know it will not be stable, I should probably clearify that in my questions. +1 for you :)

And by 'HTTP networking code' you mean capturing the server's response when a request is made? Thanks for the suggestions, I'll be sure to look in to them. +1

I could use this on my own AJAX powered application (and by 'own' I don't mean I wrote it but the setup is mine) but it wouldn't feel right to try and bypass another server's system so I must agree with @TimPost , it feels kind of 'icky'. It is a good idea however, thanks! +1!

I know that HTML pages weren't supposed to be parsed by computers but sometimes there simply is no other option. Also, I'm using publicly available information for a personal project which is not commercial in any way, I don't think I need explicit authorization, do I? Thanks for your input! +1 for you too ;)

Thanks, I'll certainly take a look at XPath some more. I'm not used to working with it, so it'll be a nice thing to learn. +1 :)
