How can I get certain text from wikipedia?



Take this for example:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Bill_of_Rights


Under the "Amendments" section, I want to get what each bullet point says, and display them in a nice list in an android application. I know there's a wikimedia api, but I have absolutely no idea how to use it, and from what I understand of it, you can get the text under a section, but I'm not sure if you can get each bullet point separately.


What would be the best way to do this? Or instead of this, should I just spend my time copying the text from over 300 pages onto a text file, and reading it in the application?

I'm trying to take 2 versions of text (10 pages long) and compare the 2 to produce the difference. I know Wikipedia has a similar feature to compare revisions. Does anyone know what they use? I'm hoping they're using a php-driven solution.
