I see. But there isn't a Pure Perl parser available, and for those that
really can't get HTML::Parser on their cheap shared hosting, isn't a
regexp that works most/some of the time better than nothing?

I've got a couple of dedicated boxs, one in the UK and one in the USA. I
actually offer hosting on both. Being able to compile isn't an issue for
me, but I make commercial scripts and some of my customers have cheap
hosting where they can't compile. (Yes I offer them my hosting, or the
scripts ran off my hosting, but some of them insist on having all
scripts on their cheap hosting).
