in thread Death to Dot Star!

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.
