Use this link as a starting point and consider using either $FIND() or $LOCATE() to narrow down the string you're looking for and then use $EXTRACT() to extract the href value. By the way, it's enough a short example string, posting nearly the whole page is an overkill and wasting space.

Set href=$Piece($Piece(String,"href=""",2),"""",1)
