This is exactly what my concern was (though admittedly, I didn't realize you could actually run code in a regex...)

It's just a simple text search, so I should have success using a form of your if statment. I think what I'll do though is strip the string of any non A-Z a-z 0-9 and space, then use that string to feed the regex.

I'll play around with it (I'm still learning about regex's) and see what I can come up with. In the mean time, if anyone has a good solution and wants to post it, I'll check back later to see how my solution compares. Thanks.

If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day.
If you teach a man to fish he will buy an ugly hat.
If you talk about fish to a starving man, you're a consultant.
