Hello everyone,

Using emacs, I'm trying to delete all tags of <whatever> and </whatever>  (whatever being any tags that start with < and end with > ).  So what I did was:

M-x query-replace-regexp
then typed without quotes  ' <.*?> '
and didn't type anything to replace it with.

This worked for all tags that were on the same line but for those that weren't, it did not delete.  Does anyone know what I could do to make this work?

Thanks for your help :)
