    scanning code/checkboxes question

    can i scan the source code of a webpage? i will explain.
    my site has the code
    <tr bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
    <td name="varname" height="21">&nbsp;</td>
    <td height="21"><input type="checkbox" name="vart" onClick="CCA(this);"></td>
    <td height="21">&nbsp;<a href="vlink.htm">vm</a>&nbsp;</td>
    <td height="21">vd</td>
    <td height="21">Jan 11</td>
    this code is repeated for every occurence, the only difference in the repititions is that varname, vart, vlink and vd are different.
    So can i scan through the code to see if any of these occur, so i could look to see if it said that varname was joebloggs and if it is it checks the checkbox in that block of code.

    Is any of this possible?

    Spammers next time you spam me consider the implications:
    (1) that you will be persuaded by me(in a legitimate mannor)
    (2)It is worthless to you, when i have finished

    I have a very limited knowledge of DOM Node structures and crap like that, however, I believe that this is a case where you'd need that. I'd probably as jkd, beetle, or brothercake as they are the first that come to mind, and are good at this sort of thing...
