Always use the right tool, BeautilfulSoup
(http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/) is best for web
scraping (IMO).

from urllib import urlopen
from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup

html = urlopen("http://www.python.org").read()
soup = BeautifulSoup(html)
for link in soup("a"):
	print link["href"], "-->", link.contents

HTH,
