[thelist] ASP equivelant of PHPs strip_tags

Hi there,

I'm having to display databased some data as an XML feed, and so want to strip 
out the HTML contained within it.

In PHP I use this to remove all the tags:

$posttitle = htmlspecialchars(strip_tags($row['posttitle']));

But ASP doesn't seem to have a similar set of functions. All I can find are 
cumbersome custom functions that use Regx.

Anyone know of an ASP function I've missed? Or a good solution?

Thanks very much,
