Assuming that the variable $text holds the example html you have included, you can use this code:


<?php
 
# Define a partial regexp for <td>'s
$tdStart = '<TD[^>]*>\s*';
$tdEnd   = '\s*</TD>\s*';
 
# Construct the partial regexps for each column
$col[] = $tdStart.'(\d+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'([a-z]+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'([a-z ]+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'(\d+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'([\d\:]+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'(.*?)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'(\d+)'.$tdEnd;
$col[] = $tdStart.'(\d+)'.$tdEnd;
 
# combine all columns into a expression that matches a full row (Except the last empty td and the last </tr>)
$preg = '#<TR>\s*'.implode('',$col).'#ims';
 
# Instantiate the array that will hold the results
$table = array();
 
# Execute the regular expression
if(preg_match_all($preg, $text, $matches)) {
        # Process the match results
	foreach($matches[0] as $index  => $row) {
		$table[] = array(
			@$matches[1][$index]
			,@$matches[2][$index]
			,@$matches[3][$index]
			,@$matches[4][$index]
			,@$matches[5][$index]
			,strip_tags(@$matches[6][$index])
			,@$matches[7][$index]
			,@$matches[8][$index]
		);
	}	
	
	echo '<pre>';
	print_r($table);
} else {
	echo 'No matches';
}
 
?>
