In your example, where would applicant name go? For that one, you have

<tr>
<td width=50% bgcolor='#f8f8ff'>Applicant name
</td>
<td width=50%>Medical Education
</td>

While the rest of them are formatted differently.

In any event, you would want something like this (in VB)

Dim pattern As String = "<td width=50% bgcolor='#f8f8ff'>Bleep\n</td>\n<td width=50%>(\d+)\n</td>"
dim bleep as string = Regex.Match( HTMLstring, pattern ).Groups(0).ToString() )

and repeat for each item you want.
