Regular expression to remove HTML content

Currently, I use the following regex expression "<[^>]*>" to filter out html content from user comments.  For example, if the text submitted contains "<script language=javascript>alert('this is a test');</script>" the expression used in a replace function would return "alert('This is a test');".  I would like an expression that will remove anything that begins with a "<" and ends with a ">".  

Any Help would appreciated.

Do you mean that you want an expression that will remove the start and end tags and everything in between?
