Need some help with selector for WP Web Scraper (2 posts)

    I tried posting this at the author's website, but the code got eaten :(

    Maybe someone here can help me? What would the selector be if I want to scrape the text called SOMETEXT below?

    [code]<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">SOMETEXT</font>[/code]

    I.e. the desired text ("SOMETEXT") is between the FONT tags as shown.

    I suck at this ... my failed shortcode attempt was:
    [code][wpws url="someurl" selector="#font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial, Helvetica\"" output="html"][/code]

    Thanks!
