Hello,

I would like to return plain text from a string (taken from a web page) with ALL content found inside of <h*></h*> tags removed.

So This:
           <h1>Hello World</h1>
           This <em>is</em> a test &amp; only <br /> a test.
           <h3 align=center>Sub <font color=red>Heading</font></h3>
           One two three.
           <h6>Goodbye</h6>

should become:
           This is a test &amp; only a test. One two three.

How can this be done?

strip_tags leaves the text inside the h tags.

Thanks!

It looks like you want to eliminate the <em> too?

$string = preg_replace('/<h[1-9]>.*?</h[1-9]>/', '', $string);

... should work fine on valid HTML.  A call to strip_tags() afterward would then drop the other tags you cut out, leaving the text inside.
