Both the link (that ihe mentioned), and the article by Tom embedded as a
comment, "Oh Yes You Can Use Regexes to Parse HTML!" in the article -
- are germane.

That Tom Christiansen can do something in Perl does not, however, mean
that everyone else can :D and of course Perl "regular expressions" are
not in the formal language sense regular - there's an example in the
documentation of matching balanced parentheses to demonstrate this.
