troubleshooting Question

Capture / Modify Webbrowser1 source before rendering to screen

hello all -
using webbrowser1 i navigate to a web site in which there is a known table from which i want to read (and in this case write/modify) some data

i'm currently looping thru all the elements in the target table something like
   foreach(row in the table)
      foreach(cell in the current row)

for each cell that i encounter, this particular page has multiple HTML tags (<div>value1</div><span><div>value 2</div></span>, etc....)

my question is 2 part:
1) when my most inner loop (foreach(cell in the row)) is currently on a specific cell, how can i then do yet another loop thru each HTML tag that's contained in that cell and ordinally reference the innertext of it?

2) how can i modify the properties of one of the given HTML tags inside that cell entry? for instance, if this is the HTML that falls in the cell (within the <td></td> tags for that table cell)

 <div>value 2</div>
<a href='http://www.google.com'>google</a>

how could i change the HTML source of the <a href tag to read:
<a href='http://www.google.com' class='MyOwnClass'>google12345</a>

and have that be the <a href that shows when i view the source of the resulting page? Right now i'm experimenting and seem to be able to change some properties of the <a href tag, but when i view the source of the fully loaded page, the <a href tag's syntax hasn't changed at all
