For the first half of the question, see 


from the book for absolute novices. It explains how to design a simple stock ticker by reading (X)HTML off the web. 

The book emphasizes systematic design. You can solve this specific problem with brute force regular-expression matching with few lines of code. The question is whether you want to learn to solve problems or copy code from mailing lists and StackOveflow w/o understanding what's really going on.
