This one is a bit trickier, might be some scripts out there that can  
process HTML files and do such things as the filtering, but if we for  
the sake of the argument assumes that you only want to remove  
'<head>' and '<body>', then this should do it (N.B. The apostrofes  
and backslashes are important and this assumes that the tags are the  
only content on those lines):

% grep -iv '</?\(head\|body\)>'  file1 file2 file3 > targetfile

Depending on the edition of the grep command, further parameters  
might be needed to make grep keep quiet and only report the (non-) 
matching lines and not which file they where found in etc.
