I am stuck. I've been trying to extract text from an RSS feed and so far I have the information I need but am stuck at extracting it into a better format. Here is what I have so far:

location city="Bethel Park" region="PA"   country="United States"
units temperature="F" distance="mi" pressure="in" speed="mph"
wind chill="21"   direction="250"   speed="10" 
atmosphere humidity="51"  visibility="10"  pressure="30.04"  rising="1" 
astronomy sunrise="7:39 am"   sunset="4:58 pm"
condition  text="Cloudy"  code="26"  temp="30"  date="Tue, 28 Dec 2010 4:52 pm EST" 
forecast day="Tue" date="28 Dec 2010" low="22" high="30" text="Mostly Cloudy" code="27" 
forecast day="Wed" date="29 Dec 2010" low="25" high="32" text="Mostly Cloudy" code="28" 

I can't delimit with space as "location city" has a space in it.
I can't use = because then I get " "Bethel Park" region" instead of just "Bethel Park"

I am trying to figure out how to exclude items in between " " and then replace space with "_"  and then use space to delimit.

Any ideas on how to exclude between " "s ?

Thanks for your help,
