Perl Gods, I need some help -- suppose I want to search a variable containing the contents of a HTML page, what would be the best way?

<font face='Arial,Helvetica,Sans Serif' color='#000055' size='2'/><B>N

And I want to extract "By arrangement." from the above .... how would I do that?

have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
