How Does Easy Web Page Watcher Work?
Easy Web Page Watcher watches web pages for your information by continuously downloading and inspecting each web page you specify for the text you specify.  A web page is an HTML file containing HTML text, therefore Easy Web Page Watcher is really downloading and reading an HTML file looking for your text.  When it finds your text in the HTML file, it extracts the entire HTML line containing your text as well as any HTML tags and returns it for your inspection.  Easy Web Page Watcher can also be set up to notify you when any changes or updates occur on the web pages you specify.  It does this by continuously downloading and comparing the HTML file with the initial HTML file recorded at the start of the watch session.  If the HTML file changes, Easy Web Page Watcher notifies you.  A basic understanding of HTML is not necessary, but it can help you use Easy Web Page Watcher in even more ways since Easy Web Page Watcher allows you to enter HTML tags in your search text.  Basic HTML Tutorial
