I'm not a sed expert either, but something like this
Code:
 sed 's/[ABCD/]*//;s/[.html]*$//' file > newfile
would do the job.
Take a look at this guide for more.

Your sed regexp won't work because it prints lines "inclusive " of the strings.
Probably easier to substitute the said strings with "BLANK" and then pipe the output to a new file.
This works and I'm sure someone with much more experience in Sed can come out with a shorter one liner.

sed -e 's/ABCD\///g' -e 's/\.html//g' file > stripped_file

Which is basically what bathory's sed script does.

Hope this helps.
