 Easy Screen-scraping with XQuery

While XQuery was designed for querying large document bases, it serves as a fine tool for transforming simple documents as well. This article shows how XQuery offers a fast and easy way to scrape HTML pages for the data you need. XQuery is the perfect tool for you if your goal is simplifying complex pages for display on small screens, or extracting elements from multiple pages to aggregate them together on a home-grown portal, or simply extracting data from Web pages because there is no other programmatic way to get the data.
