[IronPython] "no module named win32api" using PyWin32-208

I have gone with ADO.Net on the admin web application, and this is fine as
it's running within the .Net web application. It just deviates slightly from
the codebase on the server which is running in the standard Python runtime,
but I can live with that.


On the BeautifulSoup, sorry - as a newb in the Python sphere I don't know
what's common knowledge and what's not. BeautifulSoup is an excellent html
parser, much better than the parsers that ship with Python, which
sympathetically parses HTML so dealing with missing closing tags and other
common malformed html issues - vital if you're scraping html from external
sites over which you have no control. The project is here:
http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/ and there's a fair bit on the
web for it too.
