Information distributed through the Web keeps growing faster day by day,\ud and for this reason, several techniques for extracting Web data have been suggested\ud during last years. Often, extraction tasks are performed through so called wrappers,\ud procedures extracting information from Web pages, e.g. implementing logic-based\ud techniques. Many ﬁelds of application today require a strong degree of robustness\ud of wrappers, in order not to compromise assets of information or reliability of data\ud extracted.\ud Unfortunately, wrappers may fail in the task of extracting data from a Web page, if\ud its structure changes, sometimes even slightly, thus requiring the exploiting of new\ud techniques to be automatically held so as to adapt the wrapper to the new structure\ud of the page, in case of failure. In this work we present a novel approach of automatic wrapper adaptation based on the measurement of similarity of trees through\ud improved tree edit distance matching techniques
