Color HTML tags

Hello,
I am making a program and I need to know how to color HTML tags in a RichTextBox really quickly.

My current code works like this:
(Do)
1. Use the instr to find "<"
2. Use the instr to find ">"
3. RichTextBox1.Selstart=starttag(the value of the highest)
   RichTextBox1.selstart=endtag(the value of the lower one)
4. RichTextBox1.selcolor=vbblue
(Loop until can't find)

I need a code that will increase the speed by alot.
Thanx!!

Hi,
1. What is the problem with the speed?
2. Are you using an old pc with low MEM?
3. Is the HTML file is so big?
4. Can you try C or C++ it is faster.
5. Try to do this in VB 5.0:
  A. Go to Project
  B. Go to Project Properties
  C. Click on the Compile TAB and make it Compile to P-Code.

No 5 here will boost your compile time and app run time.

There is a backdraw but not in your case as is.

a111a111a111Commented:
OKAY, How long it takes to process the file " 549,663 bytes."

I am about to work on it or you can ZIP your source code and the HTML file and I'll
work on it to boost the speed.
