Hello, so I was tasked with creating a searchable database out of this single, humongous web page:

http://www.formatoql.it/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/rule-cards.html

This page contains a list of thousands of cards related to a card-game. The site's owner would like to convert it to a dynamic searchable database where you search for a card's name and you get a page with the card's data.

Before starting, I thought I'd ask some of you guys since online databases and search engines are fairly new to me.

So what do you think would be the best course of action to convert the page, and which kind of database would you choose? My first thought was MySQL, but maybe it would be overkill?

Thanks guys.
