Hi Experts,

I am reading into my application many pages of HTML so that I can retrieve (scrape) data from them. My problem is that the data I require lies a thousand lines of HTML into the page. Having to read through these unwanted lines of code each time a data scrape is made is slowing things down. Is it possible to make an HTML page request of the server starting at line 1000 for example?
