Well, it still does not work, as can be seen from the output of the
following codes:

I mean, the output from http://html2text.theinfo.org seems quite
clean, but it turns to a messay when i tried to read it into Stata,
weather by insheet using or by the Mata code followed.

Do anyone have such an experience?


thanks

Chuntao


copy "http://html2text.theinfo.org/?url=++http%3A%2F%2Fqq.ico.la%2Fqq459322464.html";
d:\temp.txt, replace
mata:
        fh = fopen("d:\temp.txt", "r")
        junk=fget(fh)
		junk
        junk=fget(fh)
		junk
		
        }
