Hi all, I'm trying to use regex to take the contents of the title tag from a html page but cant get rid of the <title> tags on either side my code looks like this:

Set regEx = New RegExp
regEx.IgnoreCase = True
regEx.Global = True
regEx.Pattern = "<title>(.*)</title>"

Set Matches = regEx.Execute(strPage)
strTitle = Matches.Item(0).Value

----

It returns something like "<title>Best widgets</title>" and I want "Best widgets". I've seen examples with $1 in to return certain bits but am not sure how to use them outside of the replace method - can anyone help me out?

Thanks

Tom

Tom,

Use this function to remove all html from a string

Function RemoveHTML( strText )
Dim RegEx

Set RegEx = New RegExp

RegEx.Pattern = "<[^>]*>"
RegEx.Global = True

RemoveHTML = RegEx.Replace(strText, "")
End Function
