I need help with this task:
I have an HTML file with this snippet:

<!-- begin includes -->
<script src="scripts/script1.js" />
<script src="scripts/script2.js" />
<script src="scripts/script3.js" />
<!-- end includes -->

I would like to get each the src attribute value of each script tag, e.g.
"scripts/script1.js, scripts/script2.js, scripts/script3.js "

After I extract the scripts I would like to be able to pass them another ant
task in my build file as a fileset or something.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to write my own task, because this is not
a very generic operation. But, can anybody think of any way I can use any
existing tasks out there to do this for me?
