C#, Regex, Extract multiple sections of text

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I'm scraping some HTML that has elided sections marked by strike-through, such as

<BR>Line 1
<BR>Line 2
<BR>Line 3 some text <STRIKE>Strike 2</STRIKE> more text
<BR>Line 4

I can write a loop that iterates over this text, removing strike-throughs one at a time, but that's lame.

You'd think I could get either a String with all strike-throughs removed, or at least a MatchCollection of everything that isn't struck through.

Kind of a fun problem...What would you do?
