Challenge #40: Parsing a HTML File

Regex will never let me down! Pretty happy how compact i was able to make this. I wish that parse would find more than just the first case. Could have limited the number of widgets to 4! ah well, can't have everything. Fun stuff.

Needed a bit of help getting started - but then got it fairly easily from there.  Lots of parsing.

another great challenge! I also concatenated the practices together if there was more than 1.

Instead of defaulting to regex I decided to use XML parse since I really dislike it and thought it would be a good practice. Also after scrapping a few website recently XML parsing doesn't look so bad anymore. 

 

Spoiler
My results are slightly different compared to output as I concatenated multiple practices for the same physician, while in the output only the first one is captured.
