Perhaps something along the lines of:

    System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex reg = new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(">.*<");
    string strChanged = Regex.Replace(strOriginal, "> <");

One mistake in your code:

string strChanged = Regex.Replace(strOriginal, "> <");

should be:

string strChanged = reg.Replace(strOriginal, "> <");

Your way did not work untill I put it into a foreach statement, So now it does the job

Thanks,
Ed
