What is wrong with the current sed command for parsing an HTML?

Here is the part of 1.html

<table width="100%" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="1">
    <tr bgcolor="#FF0000">
      <td><center><h3 id="nr_status">FAILED<h3></center></td>
    <b>1 tests have been read.</b><br />
    <b>1 tests have been executed.</b><br />
    <b>0 tests have been ignored.</b><br />
    <b>0 tests have suceeded.</b><br />
    <b>1 tests have failed.</b><br />

I do not know much about linux but I was exploring StreamEditor, the objective is to set the value FAILED in a variable. So I tried to write a code

sed -n '/<h3 id="nr_status">/,/<\/h3>/p'  ~/1.html

The output i got is everything after , not sure why is not being considered as a matching pattern ?

Just only HTML? Or you have another backend program to support this?
