I recommend using HTML::Tree (and its associated classes,
HTML::TreeBuilder and HTML::Element), not HTML::Parser directly.
Once you've got HTML::Tree installed, look at the HTML::Element
documentation, specifically at the look_down() method. That's one that
I tend to use a lot. Also extract_links().
