Yeah, I was thinking about that when I threw the expression down the first time. I was actually going to do that for you but when you said the word was in paragraph tags I figured that was it, nothing more, so I left it as is. Are you certain you want your second tag marker like that? The regex as is with the end tag marker match of [^>]* will not match on something like
<p>Hello there <b>darkage</b>!</p> I would think you will want to keep the dot metacharacter there. If not, since you are no longer using the dot metacharacter you can drop that "s" modifier.
