[thelist] Parsing text (ASP)

ah.... :)

you create a variable and start it at 1.. say we call it "index"

when you're looking for point "a" (the beginning of the tag) do this:

(for img tags)
a = Instr(index, TheString, "<img")
z = Instr(a, TheString, ">")
(do the replace)
index = z + 1
loop back

you DO know about that first optional argument to the Instr() function,
right?  well you do now.  :)

Exactly!  Where I'm stuck is I think I can find the
first one, but then I'm not exactly sure how to go
from there, then find the Z instance, then stop,
replace, then continue/start over.  :)

Any chance you've got an ASP capable example or know
where to look to find the answer?  MS Scripting docs
are horrible.
