Use the [get-url] tag 
<http://www.interchange.rtfm.info/docs/frames/ictags_144.html> to fetch 
the remote page, then use perl regular expressions to filter out the 
content you want.  Something like this should do it:

	my $page = $Tag->get_url('http://www.example.com/mypage.xml');
	$page =~ m!<string>(.+?)</string>!;
