I recall seeing a thread along these lines previously, but the search
functionality at lists.php.net is currently  offline, and try as I might
to save messages that may prove useful to me in the future, I cannot get
them all.

So I apologize that this may be found elsewhere, or may be rehash for most
of you.

That given, I'm looking for the ability (using regex, i'm sure) to put
something like <foo>booger</foo> into a database (via a form), and have it
translate to $foo="booger" when php sucks it back out.

the eventual use of this will allow me to type  something like:

that's very <m-w>tenacious</m-w> of you ...

and have the end output be ereg_replaced (or such) to:

that's very <a
href=http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?va=tenacious>tenacious</a> of
you ...

so i need to take whatever is within the <mw> tag, define that as
$word, and then replace the whole string (tags and word) with:

<a href="http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?va=$word>$word</a>

follow me?

a simple answer will do, or a point towards an appropriate turorial may
serve me better in the long run

thanks in advance
