Do you have IIS5 (Win2K)? This screams regular expressions. Doing it
otherwise will be painful and kludgy.

Don't have IIS5? You can still do regexes with ASP --you can download the
ver5.5 scripting engine and install it on your IIS4 box.

Or you can install ActiveState's win32 port of perl, which will give you a
PerlScript engine, which rocks with regexes, which you can use in ASP....

now are you confused? ;)
