Use this:
'Remove all tags

    Private Function RemoveTags(ByVal inp As String) As String

        Dim res As String



        res = inp.Substring(0, inp.IndexOf("<"))

        inp = inp.Substring(inp.IndexOf("<"))



        Do While inp.IndexOf("<") >= 0

            inp = inp.Substring(inp.IndexOf(">") + 1)

            If inp.IndexOf("<") >= 0 Then

                res &= inp.Substring(0, inp.IndexOf("<"))

            Else

                res &= inp

            End If

        Loop



        res = res.Replace("&nbsp;", " ")

        res = res.Replace(vbCr, " ")

        res = res.Replace(vbLf, " ")



        Do While res.IndexOf("  ") >= 0

            res = res.Replace("  ", " ")

        Loop

        Return res



    End Function
