    I posted this as a tip to the readers of this thread. The audience is people who aren't too fluent with regexes, and the regex for matching the question is perhaps tough for beginners. I merely wanted to point out that you don't always have to use that cumbersome and easy-to-slip-with solution. And yes, I understand that it was for educational purposes.

    The task was to get rid of .*?'s in this case unwanted behaviour. That is what my solution does. I don't see why this solution doesn't fit into the thread as nicely as Ovid's regex.

    I was a bit sparse with words in my previous post, but I had no intention to devalue Ovid's node. I think it's great. I just wanted to share an idea that was applyable to the problem Ovid was solving.

    The following article is about using reverse regular expressions, or sexgers (snicker). Its purpose it to increase efficency by avoiding the lookahead mechanism. http://www.perl.com/pub/a/2001/05/01/expressions.html Todd W.
