I've been away from Mashups for a while and probably just forgotten how to do this... (but I can't find a solution in the documentation and I'm beginning to get frustrated with myself :-)
I have created a feed by extracting some data from a table on a web page using one of the plug-in's which can be found in DeveloperWorks. This is presented in the source operator in the data mashup builder as XML. It's a simple 3 row table which when I preview it, looks like this ->
The table data cells ("td") have data in them that I'd obviously like to extract and mash but I'm finding difficulty because I can't manipulate the fields due to them having the same label names.
