Regular expression formula for searching in html

Hi All,

I want to be able to find the title name in the following html tag.

Eg: It should find 'Easter'

level1_folder_id=2%2C534%2C374%2C302%2C037%2C960&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302037960&bmUID=1238642661559">Easter</a></li><div><img alt=''  src='/website/media/images/leftNav/rowSpacer_v1_m56577569830626268.png'></div>      

Or it should find 'General Merchandise'

level1_folder_id=2%2C534%2C374%2C302%2C037%2C963&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302037963&bmUID=1238642661559">General Merchandise</a></li><div><img alt=''  src='/website/media/images/leftNav/rowSpacer_v1_m56577569830626268.png'></div>

Thanks in advance for all your help, i am very stuck at the moment.

usually you should create another question.
but I give you the solution!

1) if you are interested in getting the CONTENT attribute value for any  META element, then:
(?<=<META[^>]*CONTENT=")((?=[^>"]*">)[^<>"]*)
2) else, if the name has a significance, then :
(?<=<META[^>]*NAME="DCSext.DD_LEVEL_2"[^>]*CONTENT=")((?=[^>"]*">)[^<>"]*)

try the following one:

(?<=level1_folder_id=[^>]*>)((?=[^<>]*</a>)[^<>]*)

Thanks gmrsecs!

That worked wonders, but could i ask an additional question.

"<META NAME="DCSext.DD_LEVEL_2" CONTENT="Dairy">"

or <META NAME="DCSext.DD_LEVEL_2" CONTENT="Milk & Bread">

What regular expression would get the "Dairy" and Milk & Bread"


Thanks for your help :)
