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.
