templates .. I think Can't Post

Hello...I'm trying to find what I think is some sort of template script.

Here's the situation. I want to be able to put regularly updated news into my website. The news comes from a feed at http://www.guardianunlimited.co.uk/Distribution/Artifact_Trail_Block/0,5184,44662-0-4,00.html
which is itself regularly updated. The source for this page looks as follows :-

<!-- Vignette StoryServer 4 Sat Feb 12 19:59:08 2000 -->
<TABLE CELLPADDING=0 CELLSPACING=0 BORDER=0>

<TR><TD>
<font size="2" face="Geneva,Arial,sans-serif">
<B>
<A HREF='http://www.newsunlimited.co.uk/Distribution/Redirect_Artifact/0,4678,0-135987,00.html'
>
Ulster goes back to direct rule
</A>
</B><BR>
Peter Mandelson, the Northern Ireland Secretary, yesterday reluctantly announced the restoration of direct rule from midnight last night as Northern Ireland's unique experiment in inclusive government ended in angry farce after 72 days. <BR>
</font> </TD></TR>
</TABLE>

I want to be able to grab the headline (eg. Ulster goes back to direct rule) and the main body of the text (eg. Peter Mandelson, the...days) and put it into my web page (index.html).

I have tried to find a script that will do this but I think it's too simple for anyone to have bothered writing and posting the script.

I don't know any perl but have downloaded ActivePerl and am willing to devote some time to working out how this works.

Can anyone help ?
