Hey there

I told you my brain was feeling fuzzy :)

This works great. Only one problem... I would like it to be case
insensitive... Any way?

I assume that it would be a ereg/preg replace, but I have no clue with
regexp at all.

Anyone who could help??

How about str_replace?

$result = "This is a test, isn't it?";
$search = "is";

$replacement = '<span class="highlight">' . $search . '</span>'; $result
= str_replace( $search, $replacement, $result );
