I've got a script that searches a db every night and sends out e-mail if
it finds something a person would be interested in, based on criteria
they gave us. The problem is that I have one field that stores regions
of the country in a very unpleasant way. It stores them as:


So all of the regions for one record go into one field. The problem is
that when searching that, if someone has a preference  of 'North', I
dont want to pull records that have 'Northeast', as would happen with
the above example. Is there a way to modify the MySQL query so as to
find only 'North', keeping in mind that 'North' may be the 3rd in a list
of semi-colon separated regions? Or do I need to sift through the
results in PHP to clean them up? Thanks,
