Extracting HTML Table

I'm trying to extract a table off a web page so that I can place the data into a database. I've been trying hopelessly to use the HTMLEditorKit by iterating and even trying to get each element but I keep running into a brick wall. When using an iterator it returns null for HTML.Tag.TD even though there is a table present. I've read that there are some problems with tables in the editor so you may be able to point me in the right direction. I'm really at my the end of my wits so any help would be appreciated.

Keep it Tidy
