I'm not a PHP guy, but I know that parsing HTML with regular expressions is asking for problems. Does PHP not have any decent HTML parsers?

In Perl we use HTML::FillInForm, which is much more generic and uses HTML::Parser behind the scenes to handle all the oddities of HTML and do it very fast. It's as easy as:

file => 'blah.html',
fdat => { email => '' },

And with HTML::FillInForm::LibXML being written, it will use the libxml C library to make it blazingly fast.
