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
		<br />
		</td>
       <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)
on parseZipExample
    -- 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
end parseZipExample

Modify to suit your program.
