Hi all,

if I have some HTML that looks like this:

<area coords="427,724,432,732" href="http://BioCyc.org/ECOLI/NEW-IMAGE?
type=GENE-IN-CHROM-BROWSER&object=EG12309" onmouseover="return
overlib('<b>Gene:</b> yjtD<BR><b>Product:</
b> predicted rRNA methyltransferase, subunit of predicted rRNA
methyltransferase<BR><b>Intergenic distances (bp):</
b> yjjY< +400 yjtD +214 >thrL');"><b>Gene:</b> yjtD<br /
><b>Product:</b> predicted rRNA methyltransferase, subunit of
predicted rRNA methyltransferase<br /><b>Intergenic distances (bp):</
b> yjjY< +400 yjtD +214 >thrL');" onmouseout="return nd();">
</area>

is there an easy way to use BeautifulSoup to extract just the value of
the href attribute?

Thanks,

elsa
