Re: parse file html to get links in href tag on blackberry

If you can create an HtmlDocument from the string, then there are various get methods you can use to work around the 'nodes' and thus find the tags you are interested in.  I don't know how to do that though.  So one option is to create a BrowserField, add the html to the BrowserField and then get the HtmlDocument from the BrowserField.  I have never tried that but it might work.


Or you could attempt to parse it yourself.  I'm guessing there are a few light weight open source Browsers around that have parsing routines that you might be able to rework to do this.


Or use brute force and just search for them using indexOf.  This is the easiest way and if you have control over the actual web pages then you can make sure that these will be suitable for the brute force approach. 


Hope this helps...
