HTML Parsing in VB.Net

Does anyone have any good examples of parsing WebPages in VB.Net. My
application needs to get information from certain HTML tables and I haven't
been able to find a good way to approach the problem. I have researched
RegularExpressi ons but have found it to be rather complicated for what I am
attempting to accomplish. I was hoping that there would be some type of
utility that would allow me to parse through the webpage in a tree like
structure. I found one utility called HTMLAgilityPack but it seems to be a
little difficult to work with. If any one has any suggestions or examples I
would really appreciate it.

I need to parse HTML output and find all instances of a word/phrase and then convert it to a link. We have a reasonably large product catalogue.

Python 2.3.5 seems to choke when trying to parse html files, because it doesn't realize that what's inside <!-- --> is a comment in HTML, even if this comment is inside <script> </script>, especially if it's a comment inside that script code too. The html file: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"> <html><head><title>Choke on this</title> <script language="JavaScript">
