Also, you might want to consider the /i in your regex to avoid typing the case combinations: /[hH][rR][eE][fF]/ is better done /href/i -- at least it's better for your fingers ;)

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

    Thanks for that hint and for caring about my fingers ;-) but I thought that /[hH][rR][eE][fF]/ was cheaper than /href/i. Am I wrong on that?

      Your original regex may be cheaper than the one that uses the i option, but the difference is so miniscule as to not matter. At that point, clarity is more important than speed.
