"Screen Scraping" is a technique where a system presents a user interface and a client system pretends to be a user operating a terminal or other display device, and extracts characters from certain positions on the screen.
"HTML Screen Scraping" is a similar technique where a system presents a HTML user interface and the client software pretends to be a browser and fills in forms, and extracts results from the HTML output.
HTML screen scraping is a lot less reliable than traditional screen scraping, as there are so many ways of achieving a similar visual result, and HTML interfaces change so often. It is also a lot less popular than traditional screen scraping.
