Writer is with:
Strengths:   Filters out HTML well and is quick and to the point  
Weaknesses:   Doesn't loop to replace all instances  
Details:   I modified it slightly to add a loop to remove all instances of HTML, within the passed string. '************************************** ' Name: Strip HTML ' Description:Strips any HTML tags from ' a string and returns the results. I use ' this for data that users submit through ' forms to prevent them from using HTML. ' By: Lewis E. Moten III ' ' Inputs:asHTML - the string that may contain HTML code ' ' Returns:Returns a string that has been stripped of HTML code. ' ' Assumes:This function assumes that you ' have vbScript 5.0 or higher installed. ' ' Side Effects:Your page will come up with errors if you do not have vbScript 5.0 ' or higher installed on your server (or on the client browser ' if that is where it is being used) ' ' This code is copyrighted and has limited warranties.

Strengths:   Simple Example  
Weaknesses:   Does not offer Reg Expression that can retrieve page title etc...  
Details:   I'm working on a spider application. This code was very helpful as I have no prior experience with Regular Expressions. If you want to retrieve page title you'll need to write your own function and call it before running this.
