Need to find the value between <tag> </tag> using VBscript

I have using msxml to scrape the contents of a webpage into a variable (myvar).  Now I want to use VBscript to store the string between 2 specific tags found in the source.  The tags data I want is held between the following:

<div id="myscore">137475</div>

So I want to search the entire myvar variable and end up with a new variable that only holds the value "137475".  Can somone write a function that does this?  Seems like it would be fairly easy to do using InStr, but my brain is asleep this morning!
