Let's say you want to find that when a button is clicked then your code goes like this:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  str:string;
begin
  str:=Memo1.Text;
  repeat
    delete(str,1,pos('<td class',str)+1);
    showmessage(trim(copy(str,pos('>',Str)+1,pos('</td>',str)-pos('>',Str)-1)));
  until pos('<td class',Str) <= 0;
end;

If you are sure it will be in that format (i.e. <td class="td2_2"> and  </td>) then:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  str:string;
begin
  str:=Memo1.Text;
  repeat
    delete(str,1,pos('<td class="td2_2">',str)+length('<td class="td2_2">'));
    showmessage(trim(copy(str,pos('<td class="td2_2">',Str)+1,pos('</td>',str)-pos('<td class="td2_2">',Str)-1)));
  until pos('<td class="td2_2">',Str) <= 0;
end;

Please ignore all my above posts, here is the correct one:
procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  str:string;
begin
  str:=Memo1.Text;
  repeat
    delete(str,1,pos('<td class="td2_2">',str)+ length('<td class="td2_2">')-1);
    showmessage(trim(copy(str,1,pos('</td>',str)-1)));
  until pos('<td class="td2_2">',Str) <= 0;
end;
