accepted I'm replacing some coworkers' old (Win XP) PCs with new ones (Win 7). They only login via the network domain. Will all files/settings transfer?

Thanks a lot. I'm curious as to what the WET wizard would do if the settings/documents will reappear on their own?

Okay, thanks a lot. What is the Transfer Wizard transferring that isn't automatically retrievable?

comment How do I quickly 'extract' specific information from web pages (source code) and format it into XML?
Thanks! I'll look at these tools. I'm hoping to avoid writing programs and scripts (I'm a baaad programmer), but I'll dive into it if I have to. The HTML->XML converters I've found haven't proved suitable.

comment How do I quickly 'extract' specific information from web pages (source code) and format it into XML?
Thanks! I was hoping this problem ('web scraping' -- new term!) was common enough that there'd be programs dedicated to the task, but modules might be good enough. I don't have Python experience, but I have taken courses in C++ and Java. Product information is stored in a database, but I don't have access to it; my boss has asked me to come up with a solution with what I have, since all the information needed is in the source.

@OliverSalzburg Much of the product information is manually maintained; each page also contains automatically generated information, but I don't have access to the 'back end' of things, and have been asked to come up with a solution with what's available (and all the needed information is definitely contained in the raw source code).
