You could create a script which goes out to Yahoo (or wherever) every X
minutes grabs the page then strips out the information that you need.  Paste
that info into a separate file/database then read from there when pages are

You can probably also find a web service that provides this information such
as this:

I know that there is a Perl extension that allows for the automation of
this, but don't know about PHP.  It shouldn't be too hard to recreate,

Subject: [thelist] [ot] Free stock quote script

i am looking to embed a stock quote (NASAQ, NYSE and S&P) in a website. Is
there free code, similar to the news features offered by moreover.com to
embed this in a website?  im looking to do it in PHP, not javaScript, or
worse Java.

 <tip type="Search Engines" author="Cayley Vos">When making search engine
friendly websites, don't put your keyword phrases in invisible places such
as meta tags.  Put them in the title tags and main body copy. Search engines
only index what users can see - put your keywords out in the open.
