jSoup to get text from <span> class

P: 1
I have a part of the HTML file with the following format:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <h6 class="uiStreamMessage" data-ft=""> 
  2.    <span class="messageBody" data-ft="">Twisted<a href="http://"><span>http://</span>
  3.    <span class="word_break"></span>www.tb.net/</a> Balloons
  4.    </span>
  5. </h6>
  6.  
In the file, there are other span classes. But I would like to get the text for ALL 'messageBody' span only in the html file, which will be inserted into the database.

I've tried:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Elements links = doc.select("span.messageBody");
  2. for (Element link : links) {
  3.      message = link.text();
  4.      // codes to insert into DB
  5. }
but it doesn't work. Please help.
