    Expedia price tag

    Hi,

    I wrote a program before to check airline ticket prices from expedia.com. They had the prices in the html source code as text before so I could find it and read it. But now it looks like it's integrated in some kind of a picture or may be something else I don't know.

    Does anybody have an idea what kind of programming technique they use and how to read the price?

    Thanks.

    Scraping the pages of a commercial website the size of Expedia is always difficult because (a) they don't want you to do it, and (b) they make frequent changes to their code. If you want Expedia data, sign up for the Expedia Affiliate Network at http://developer.ean.com/ and use their approved API.
