I don`t have to much idea, but did you try somethign like this

$Your_URL = "put your URL here"

$oIE = _IECreate($Your_URL)

$Obj = _IEGetObjectById(_$oIE, "paragraph")

If is Obj($Obj) then consolewrite($Obj.type&@CRLF)

$oP = _IEGetObjById($oIE, "paragraph")
$oA = _IETagnameGetCollection($oP, "a", 0) ; scope to what's inside the P, get first A
ConsoleWrite($oA.href &@CRLF)
