It would be a good thing if a provider started to give stock quotes in XML
:-). I made an application for myself to retreive the information from a
stock quotes site.

What I do is first convert the HTML to XML using tidy.exe from W3C, and then
load the XML file and retreive the information I need. It works quite good.
You will have to find yourself a site that has it's stock information in
'good written' HTML, otherwise tidy.exe will not be able to convert it to
XML. You will also have a problem if the way the HTML file with the stock
information is written keeps changing from time to time, but that does not
happen often.
