An example using htmllib?

I want a routine that strips a line of html of all it's tags. e.g I want
it to turn ....
"<p><b>This is an <h1><blink>IRRITATING</blink></h1> line of </b>text</p>"
... into ......
"This is an IRRITATING line of text"
I've been told I should use htmllib. I've tried reading the htmllib docs
in the Library Reference, but I have to say, it just confuses me.
Does anyone know of a page that shows some simple examples of the sort of
thing I want to do?
Or, is it possible to use the example provided in the docs to achieve
this? Here's the example below ...
from HTMLParser import HTMLParser
def handle_starttag(self, tag, attrs):
print "Encountered the beginning of a %s tag" % tag
def handle_endtag(self, tag):
print "Encountered the end of a %s tag" % tag
