ok, I have a vb.net forms application, this application has to read values from an html file on the hard drive.

What I want to do is write a function that can pull all the values I need from the html file into my program, here is an example of two of the values I need to pull out.

The good thing is that each value is embedded in a span tag and has it's own unique id attribute.

I need someone to guide me through parsing the dom to get the element values by id.

Here is two examples:

How would I write my code to pull the values Blue, and Busy from my html file.

<span id="lblColor">Blue</span>
<span id="lblStatus">Busy</span>

thanks in advance.
