modules shmodules - parsing HTML for tags.


I am trying to get a script to read in another page from the www and then makealterations to it, like replacing words (the object being humour).  I am using the LWP::Simple module to read in a page and this works successfully.  I am having problems parsing the HTML so I only make word substitutions in the body text, not the tag text.  I thing I might be able to use one of the modules below to help with this, but haven't got a clue how to use them.  Does anyone have any suggestions/examples?
