Hi Will,

Yes you would probarly have to parse the HTML page provided that you cannot
get access to the file in another format (anonymous FTP, TXT file etc).

I might be able to help you just a little more as at the University of Oslo
they have a course in which you make a stockplotter applet in Java.
I took the course before they switched to Java, but if you (and anyone else interested)
emailed me in private (and removed the .nospam ending from my email adress)
I can probarly send you some working source files from some of my friends
which have taken that course....
