Hey, I'm sure the answer to this is somewhere already, but my account was just suspended (haven't answered any in a while) so I can see solutions.  But I still have points to give away!  I'm wondering what the easiest way to replace two html lines of buttons are.  I'm scraping a web page (my own) to send in an email and I want everything but the buttons to go along.  But with all the double quotes and stuff in the html, a simple replace doesn't work.  How should I do this?

What doesn't work:

strOutput = Replace(strOutput, "<input type="submit" name="btnPrint" value="Print" id="btnPrint" class="btn" onmouseover="this.className='btn btnhov'" onmouseout="this.className='btn'" />", "")
       
strOutput = Replace(strOutput, "<input type="submit" name="btnCancel" value="Cancel" id="btnCancel" class="btn" onmouseover="this.className='btn btnhov'" onmouseout="this.className='btn'" />", "")


Thanks in advance for your help!

You use two quotes together (""):

    strOutput = Replace(strOutput, "<input type=""submit"" name=""btnPrint"" value=""Print"" id=""btnPrint"" class=""btn"" onmouseover=""this.className='btn btnhov'"" onmouseout=""this.className='btn'"" />", "")
