I need to find all href tags, even if they have attributes attached or not.

here are samples of what i am trying to match:

<a href="/theurl/page.aspx" title="title text">
<a href="/theurl/page.aspx">
<a href="/theurl/page.aspx" title="title text" rel="something">
<a href="page.aspx">
<a href="page.aspx" title="title text">

Excluding the closing tag </a>
