How to read an HTML Document in an Oracle Package

The following is a business scenario we have:
1) A User fills out a Time Sheet on a PDF Document.
2) The PDF Document is then sent via email to our Exchange Server.
3) Once the document is received at our Exchange Server, PDF LiveCycle generates an HTML version of the PDF.

My question is this:
I want to create an Oracle Package that can read the HTML Document from a Shared Folder.  I've created many Oracle Packages but I have never created a Package that can read the Tags of an HTML Document.

How can I do this?  Sample code would be greatly appreciated.

Is the HTML XHTML compliant?

If it is basically an XML document, you can use many ways to parse the XML.

You can pass the XML into the procedure as a CLOB parameter or if it is on the database server, read it directly from the file system.

Then it is a matter of parsing the XML.

I would probably start with XMLTABLE:
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e41084/functions253.htm#SQLRF06232

If the XML is really complex, you might be better off using the DOM.

The more information you can provide us, the more exact our comments.
