Yes, I am aware of HTMLParser (I thought I mentioned it in my post, but I 
guess I deleted that sentence). I was hoping something like the described 
parser is already available on the net. Basically, I need a DOM like parser 
for HTML, with xpath capabilities. xml.dom might help me, but before that I 
obviously need some kind of html-tidy. Is the famous Tidy from w3c ported 
to python? I found mxTidy which is basically a wrapper around Tidy, and not 
a native implementation.

Thanks
