This is a slightly unrelated question and is more about web programming I guess.

How can I scan perticular sentences(string) in a webpage and then look for them in a word file? Of course I can do this myself but how can I program something to do it for me?

I've never done anything like this, but here's how I would go about it.

  1. Consult my friend, Google. :)
  2. If that didn't help, I'd see how I can download a website (i.e. get the content) and search in that. (See this, for instance.)
  3. Then find a way to read a Word document. And search in it. (See this, for instance.)

I wasn't sure exactly what to ask your friend- Google- but this helps.
