hi jeff, 
re: matching the link description (text or image) this works for me:

str= '<a href="#" target="_blank" title="some title"><img
src="image.gif" width="1" height="1" alt="some alt"> a</a>';

re = /<a[^>]*>(.*)<\/a>/i;
document.write("<xmp>" + RegExp.$1 + "</xmp>");

I've not come across the problem you descripe with match.. but try exec
