Yeah, I realised that quite early on in my messing about. What I have ended up with is: $regex = '/".*?"/'; $found = preg_match_all($regex, $sentence, $phrases); This still leaves the quotes in the phrases, but at least I only get one copy of each phrase. I'm just trimming the quotes afterwards. Thanks for all the advice. Mark -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
