Hello,
I'm using javascript to search in html document
using the commands such as:
doc.selection.createRange();
txt = doc.body.createTextRange();
txt.moveStart("character", 1);
txt.moveEnd("textedit", 1);
txt.findText(...);

It works fine,
but I'd like to add another feature
search with a wildcard.
Example:
Search for: a*b*c
will find: abc, azbc, azzbzzzc,
etc.
How should I do that?
Thanks, Aryeh.

I'm familiar with RegEx in Javascript.
The question is how to do Regular Expression search with the findText command...
