We've been asked a few times to create a screen scraper, however, the ASP.Net Library site has created a way of screen scraping. They parse the HTML and find the tables in it and directly convert those to Data Sets for your program to consume.
Their demo uses pre-done HTML, however they include links to another article they've written to directly get the HTML from a web page too!
