Hello Justin,

That worked perfect but I have one more problem I need to know if one
of the word is UNAVAILABLE I need to know if it is the first one or
the second one. I don't know if there is any way to do this.
               1st                 2nd
              1st                   2nd
 $string ="AVAILABLE More Info UNAVAILABLE ";
