No, I'm pretty sure the above won't work - you can't use a jsp tag inside 
of a scriptlet.

Seth, are you asking about parsing the content of an included page that is 
part of the application (ie on the same server, within the same context), 
or are you talking about accessing a remote page via http?

Either way its possible, but you'll have to write some code to do it.  But 
then, you have to write code anyway since you want to parse the returned 
text, right?
