    Regular Expression: Find any character except a specific word or expression?

    Budes

      Hi everyone,

       

      Hope someone can help me...!

       

      Is there a way, with regular expression in Dreamweaver, to find every character except a specific word or tag in a find and replace? Not some characters, but a specfic expression.

       

      If I use, for example, ([^<a href]*), it will find everything except < or a or h or re, etc. not the expression: <a href!

       

      Here is an example of what I want to do:

       

      <a name="([^"]*)"([^<]*)>([^<a href]*)</a>

       

      An other similar problem. In the following example:

       

      <a name="([^"]*)"([^<]*)>Whatever it is</a>

       

      What should I write instead of "Whatever it is"? I really mean whatever (<,",=,/,>,etc.) !

       

      Thanks!
