	The problem is that it comes from the server all as one string.
	How do you want to break it up? One array element per line?  One array
element per html tag? What?

What I'm triying to do is not to get a blob as you called (everything in one
string). what I want to get is the content into in array and my question is
how can I do that?.
If you can help me or point me on how to do this it will be just great.
