I would suggest you to try the  tika parser if you are not using it now. It
might give you better parsed HTML. Next - if you want exclude some parts of
text from HTML than you must re-write html parser and adopt it to your

To reduce relevancy of your page - you may play with boost values which are
are configured in the nutch-site.xml. But they will apply to every crowled
page and so if you want to apply it to only one(serveral) page then you
might want to look at this patch.
