Try something like this:
procedure TForm1.ParseResults(sl: TStringList);
var
 i, j: Integer;
begin
 for i := 0 to sl.Count-1 do
 begin
   if Pos('(1)', sl.Strings[i]) > 0 then
   begin
     for j := 0 to 39 do
     begin
       Memo1.Lines.Add(sl.Strings[i+j]);
     end;
   end;
 end;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.ParseFile(var sl: TStringList);
var
i, j: integer;
ovTable: OleVariant;
s: String;
begin
ovTable := WebBrowser1.OleObject.Document.all.tags('TABLE').item(0);
for i := 0 to (ovTable.Rows.Length - 1) do
begin
  for j := 0 to (ovTable.Rows.Item(i).Cells.Length - 1) do
  begin
    s := ovTable.Rows.Item(i).Cells.Item(j).innerText;
    sl.Text := s;
  end;
end;
end;
 
procedure TForm1.FormShow(Sender: TObject);
begin
 memo1.Lines.Clear;
 Webbrowser1.navigate('http://localhost/top40.html');
end;
 
procedure TForm1.WebBrowser1DocumentComplete(Sender: TObject;
 const pDisp: IDispatch; var URL: OleVariant);
var
 sl: TStringList;
begin
 sl := TStringList.Create;
 try
   Parsefile(sl);
 finally
   ParseResults(sl);
   sl.Free;
 end;
end;

Then the HTML must be different. Let me look at it.

Yep, there are no TABLE tags in that HTML. What is it that you want to parse and into what.

There is no way to get words from just line 2 or line 10, you have to know the source code of the page you want to pars and how it is designed. HTML is NOT very pretty and most of the time not very well structured so it would even be difficult to parse it based on the elements.

My suggestion is to study the HTML source of the page(s) you want to pare and then come back and we can help you figure out EXACTLY what it is you want.
