Need help finding and changing a string using Coldfusion

bigmikey88 asked
Last Modified: 2017-11-12

Using ColdFusion, what is the easiest way to find links like the one below in a web page, and removing the tag so its no longer a link.

The link text, in this case "top executives" needs to stay.  Just don't want it to be a clickable link.

The key here is that all these links will have both the "XYZ" folder and the ".htm" extension, which makes them unique on the page.

I am slightly familiar with regex, but not good enough to do this on my own.

<a href="/XYZ/management/top-executives.htm"><u>top executives</u></a>
