Scraping HTML depends on your goals and the complexity of the pages,
I use MatchChuck( txt,(?U), char1, char2) in a repeat loop to parse
nested tables to extract header-row (column-row) data cells.
It is better to use LC chunking to reduce the size of the text block
for regEx, otherwise the regEx scanning takes exponentially longer for
repeating pattern blocks, such as html tables.
Glad you understood the explanation.
