Reading a html file at a specified url

I have a html file at a given URL ( for example: http://etp.free.fr/1.htm)
This file contain only a numeric value
I want to read this value in order to use it in my VI

How could I do ?

Thank you for your help!

The LabVIEW Internet toolkit has a VI called "Get URL" or "Read URL" that
will return the document in string format.

If you don't have internet toolkit, you can do something
like the attached vi. after you get the data, you have to parse it
to extract your values.

Open a TCP Connection to host etp.free.fr on Port 80. Take a format into
string, wire a string constant to Format string and write "GET %s
HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n" to it. Connect input one with the URL and write this
to the TCP Connection using TCP Write. Now read TCP answer and close TCP
connection.

thats it!!
