In my code, I basically try to parse the html source and and find the third table, read its contents and write them to a variable as the following:

Column1 Column2

ABCDE   plus
FFG        minus

ABCDE, FFG, pass and fail are all in the cells of the table in this web page.

Here is part of my code that does this:

try {
        		    HttpUnitOptions.setScriptingEnabled(true);
        		    WebConversation wc = new WebConversation();
        		    WebResponse wr = wc.getResponse(siteAddress);
        		    WebTable table = wr.getTables()[2];
        		    java.lang.String[][] cells = table.asText();
        		    
        		    for(java.lang.String[] row : cells) {
        				for(java.lang.String cell : row) {
        			    	mycheckActivity += cell;
        				}
        				mycheckActivity += System.getProperty("line.separator");
        			}	
        		}
        		catch(Exception e) {
        		    e.printStackTrace();	
        		}

Probably the HTML source from whithin you parse your data is not XHTML valid and so when trying to parse it your system breaks.

Try to check the raw code and modify it to comply with XHTML specifications.
