Read text from HTML

Last Modified: 2012-09-04
I have a .NET web application using which I am trying to obtain some data out of a webpage. I used StreamReader to obtain the source code of the webpage in HTML. Somewhere in the middle is a table which has the data that I need. The entire HTML looks too complicated to be read using Regex etc.
Is it possible to  extract only text out of HTML or are there better ways to parse a HTML webpage?
