Use the shortcode 'remote_get' with the parameter 'url' to insert the content from that url into your page or post. The are available parameters like start and stop/end to parse out a specific part of the content that you wish to display.

Now you can also wrap any content in the 'preg_replace' shortcode to manipulate it into the desired format.
