I need to do a very lightweight screen scrape, parse, find a url, then scrape that page for a stock number.
See page1 and page2 in the samples for reference:
Regexp should parse out the links preceeded by a "nopicture" image, and follow the link to find it's stock number (easily parsed on page2). It would then skip past the link with a named picture, to find the next "nopicture".
The end result, should be a script that lists all of the product names, in their respective categories, whether or not they have a photo and their corresponding stock#s. It should also have a querystring toggle to only show the items needing photos. I also expect it to be flexible with the surrounding html content, as it may change slightly from time to time. I'd prefer well-documented variables be used for static content, so it can be tweaked in the future if need be.

Windows 2000/2003, IIS, ASP.NET, coded in C#. I expect clean and documented code. For example:
See the "linksExpression" for a good example of what I consider well-docuemented regexp: <[url removed, login to view]>
