Just a quick warning. You should note that there are all kinds of problems with any `simple' rule that attempts to `strip' HTML. That's one of the problems with the HTML spec. If you can control the source of your HTML, and guarantee that the pathological conditions are not present, then simple schemes of the kind you are trying might happen to work, but don't count on them to deal with any `general' form of HTML that might come in from the world `outside'.
