  Description     : A fast, enjoyable HTML parser

Hpricot is a fast, flexible HTML parser written in C.  It's designed to be very
accomodating (like Tanaka Akira's HTree) and to have a very helpful library
(like some JavaScript libs -- JQuery, Prototype -- give you.)

Also, Hpricot can be handy for reading broken XML files, since many of the same
principles are used.  If a quote is missing, Hpricot tries to figure it out.
If tags overlap, Hpricot works on sorting them out.
