That looks like a very nice, concise tutorial that should help soup
noobs like me to get up and running quickly.  I like the added value of
comments like: "Under the hood, attribute access is actually a search
for the first tag of the correct type, so soup.title will also access
the first <title> tag."

I haven't needed BeautifulSoup yet, but I know I will some day.

Thanks for sharing, Kent.
