hi jackie,

if you don't mind... can i ask what you're looking to accomplish? are you
looking to simply get the text/string data, or something else???

Subject: Use BeautifulSoup to delete certain tag while keeping its

Dear all,

I have the following html code:

<td valign="top" headers="col1">
 <font size="2">
  Center Bank
  <br />
  Los Angeles, CA
 </font>
</td>

<td valign="top" headers="col1">
 <font size="2">
  Salisbury
Bank and Trust Company
  <font face="arial, helvetica" size="2" color="#0000000">
   <br />
   Lakeville, CT
  </font>
 </font>
</td>

How should I delete the 'font' tags while keeping the content inside?
Ideally I want to get:

<td valign="top" headers="col1">
  Center Bank
  <br />
  Los Angeles, CA
</td>

<td valign="top" headers="col1">
  Salisbury
Bank and Trust Company
   <br />
   Lakeville, CT
</td>

Thank you.

Jackie
