Where is Python here? :-)
This is not even a question. What's the question and how it is related to this HTML code sample?

from BeautifulSoup import BeautifulSoup

soup = BeautifulSoup('<span style="font-weight:bold;">Stock Status</span>:In Stock<meta content="InStock" itemprop="availability">')
stock = soup.find(text='In Stock')
print stock

I tried with the above code but no result.

<span style="font-weight:bold;" id="myspan">Stock Status</span>

style = soup.find('<span style="font-weight:bold;" id="myspan">Stock Status</span>')
stock = myspan.innerHTML
print stock

There is an error, I cannot even access the id that is created. What am I missing?
