Why don't you paint the whole picture with your requirements (including but not limited to "get other texts out of the html", "get rid of the new lines", "replacing the commas with semicolon") and input data so people could work towards a final, optimal solution? E.g. the sed, awk, and dual tr invocations could be combined into a single run of one of the tools,

Hi,

here's a suggestion using pup, a html-parser written in go:

Code:
pup 'div p text{}' < data.html

# Output:

        text1
        

        text2
        

        text3

Explanation: Get all p-Elements with div-elements as parents and output the text data of it.

To get rid of the empty lines, I suggest a small sed command afterwards:

Code:
pup 'div p text{}' < data.html | sed '/^\s*$/d'

# Output
        text1
        text2
        text3

Another short demonstration of pup which I shortly used to get the numbers of cases for the coronovirus out of a complex website and into variables(for generating this graph: coronavirus statistics)) with only one combined command:

Code:
 read n n n n infected deceased recovered < <(wget -O- -q https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/  \
       | pup 'div[id="maincounter-wrap"]' | pup 'h1,span text{}' | xargs echo)

Pup is found here: pup on Github

As all GO binaries, it's statically linked and quite large in size(4 MB). Precompiled Binaries are available on github(link above).
