The key section of the reply
[ url http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/zcl_0_results.jsp ] is
<td headers="full" height="34" valign="top" class="main"
style="background:url(images/table_gray.gif); padding:5px 10px;">
9876 W CHARLESTON BLVD APT 2555<br />
LAS VEGAS NV 89117-7061
<td style="background:url(images/table_gray.gif);"> </td>
and here is the code I would use to parse for the zip
(keeping it simple)
-- I copied the source window, so
put the clipboarddata into htmlPage --
replace " " with cr in htmlPage
filter htmlPage with "?????-????"
filter htmlPage without "*--*"
filter htmlPage without empty
;put htmlPage --into msgbox
Modify to suit your program.
