Html parser


Could you recommend an html parser that works with python (jython
2.2)? HTMLParser does not seem to be in this library. To test some
of our browser based (mailnly php) code I seek for field names and
values associated with them.

Thanks,

jh

I'm new here, but I believe BeautifulSoup is the canonical

It is, but personally I'm a fan of Connelly Barnes' htmldata module:

Much easier to use than BeautifulSoup IMO.
