The information available on web pages mostly contains semi-structured text documents which are represented either in XML, or HTML, or XHTML format that lacks formatted document structure. The document does not discriminate between the text and the schema that represent the text. Also the amount of structure used to represent the text depends on the purpose and size of text document. No semantic is applied to semi-structured documents. This requires extracting core contents of text document to analyse words or sentences to generate useful knowledge. This paper discusses several techniques and approaches useful for extracting core content from semi-structured text documents and their merits and demerits.
