Help! How to load text from a webpage into variable

Ok, I want to be able to read the text off of a website’s html and put it in a variable.
This website does not offer xml RSS feeds and I have no control over how its data is presented.

I had planned on doing this:

myPAVar = new LoadVars();
myPAVar.onLoad = function(src:String) {
     if (success == true) {
         trace( this);

Problem with this, is that the data that is returned is an incomplete jarbled mess like this:


There must be a way to get this text in a complete and readable form. Once I have the text loaded, i will just issue a split command on the text to break it down and find my variables…

Any help is greatly appreciated.
