Hash: SHA1

If the target is in well-formed XML (XHTML is an example), you could use XSLT 
to say 'i want the third column of a particular row - in this instance, 
Melbourne'. However, since few people actually adhere to standards, you're 
probably going to need a regex... if you're not comfortable with them, 
explode() could be useful (although it is slower)

Somebody posted an extremely helpfull little quick reference at php.net/ereg, 
i think... that might help you.
