So in VB6, I'm trying to extract, "Experimenting with my new camera on live subjects!" from the web page "http://www.flickr.com/photos/antonystanley/200564369"

I've tried WebBrowser1.Document.body.innerHTML and WinHttpRequest and I just can't get back the data I'm looking for.

Any ideas?

What you are looking for is in the header, not the body.  Which of the items with that text are you seeking?

I'm trying to set it up so that it grabs the description of the photo, in this particular case, "Experimenting with my new camera on live subjects!"

If you view the source, you will see that text in six places.

Now I'm getting it.  What was holding me up is that I was looking for "meta-field photo-desc" and it wasn't finding it on the innerhtml.
