Hi,
I have the following which works great and strips all the html tags from my xml file where applicable:

Dim sMetaDesc As String = Regex.Replace(XPath("summary"), "<[^>]+>", "")

But I also need it to be able to remove quotes  "" .

What should the statement look like to do this?

Thanks
T

try this (can't test it right now):

Dim sMetaDesc As String = Regex.Replace(XPath("summary"), "(""|<[^>]+>)", "")

Open in new window
