I have a string I'm examining during a regex.

temp = "CABLE TIE NATURAL 15 INCH"

When the regex sees this string "specifically the  "15"
temp = Regex.Replace(temp, " .5 ", " .5 0.5 .50 0.50 1/2 ")

It converts the string to
CABLE TIE NATURAL .5 0.5 .50 0.50 1/2 INCH  1/2~13
I'm not looking for ".5"  but  "15"   ???

Thanks
