Is there a way to to read an external web page as a plain-text, and extract some of the contents?

I want to have my wiki page be able to display the version information that is in the footer of serveral external web pages I support.

I was looking at:

Is there an example of how to implement such a thing on a confluence page?

Is there an easier/better way?
