there a way which you know of that can search through html documents and
extract selected information, and display that in another (main) html
document??

any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

Plenty.

Definitly! What is it you want to do?

Where do the pages come from (if not from the same domain, it's
impossible in a normal browser). What do you have: A loaded page
in a window or just the URL?

Suggestion:
Use DOM to create an iframe. Load the page into the iframe.
Use DOM to traverse the document tree of the loaded page.
