KML to SHP: Extract attributes from HTML "PopupInfo" field

Hi all,

 

I have seen this question posted several times but I still haven't found a solution and it's looking like I'm going to have to turn to a script for the answer.  I downloaded a KML file and ran the KML to Layer tool in ArcGIS to convert it to a feature class.  All of the attributes I'm interested in are stored in HTML in a field called "popup" in my feature class.  Ideally, I would like to extract this information into separate fields (Name, Pond, etc...)  Any suggestions in how to do this?  I'm still fairly new to python but interested in learning more and this seems like a great opportunity.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Jason
