I'm trying to speed up the process of getting values from an HTML page to a Google Docs Spreadsheet through scripting.

I remember Microsoft Excel had the import data function, but I don't own a copy of that.

Is it possible to do this through Google Docs?

You might want something like the importXML or importHtml functions? These will let you import an HTML page and use XPath to process the content.

Take a look at google commandline tools. You should be able to interact with google docs from a script easily with that.
