I'd like to be able to extract 'Joe Bloggs' from this:
<span class="label"><span class="highlight"><span class="highlight-
<span title="offline" class="name presence-offline">Joe Bloggs</
<li class="view-profile first"><a href="/users/joebloggs" title="View
<li class="view-blog"><a href="/blog/88" title="View blog">View blog</
<li class="add-contact"><a href="/relationship/88/request?
destination=dashboard%2Flatest-activity" title="Add to your contacts">
<li class="send-message last"><a href="/" title="Initiate a chat
conversation with Joe Bloggs"
');;return false;">Initiate chat</a></li>
i.e. I need to extract the value from the first tag which DOESN'T have
any enclosed tags.
Now, I could write some code to do this in Perl or Ruby, but I'd like
to be able to do it with a pure RE if it can be done.
