What I tend to do in this sort of situation is use HTML::TokeParser
(which is just an alternative interface to HTML::Parser that matches
better with the way I work) and re-emit everything except the tokens
that I want to fiddle with. Not claiming this is the best way to go, but
most of what I do is parsing HTML rather than modifying it, and I
already use HTML::TokeParser a lot.
