Powershell -contains


I'd need to know if an html block contains Red, this does not work

$text = '<h3</h3> <Table>                
    <TR bgcolor=D1D0CE align=center>
    <TR><TD> test</TD>
   <TD bgcolor=LightGrey align=center> </TD><TD bgcolor=Red align=center></TD><TD bgcolor=Red align=center></TD></TR><TR><TD>test</TD>'


How should I address it?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The Contains() method is case sensitive.
Try $text.ToLower().Contains('red')

The operator -match is not case sensitive, so you can also use that, but since it is more powerful (using regex) it is more using more resources:
   $text -match 'red'

Great, thanks! However, it also finds Registered :-(

That's something completely different ;-). To find the exact word, -match is even better suited, because you can feed in a regex. Just use '\bred\b' as search pattern.
