Hi Erwin, Yep, this does exactly what str_replace does.
How can I make the whole thing case insensitive: $result= "This Is A Test, Isn't It?" $search= "IS" It will include the 'is' in 'This', and also the 'Is' and the 'is' in 'isn't'. cheers David Russell IT Support Manager Barloworld Optimus (Pty) Ltd Tel: +2711 444-7250 Fax: +2711 444-7256 e-mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] web: www.BarloworldOptimus.com -----Original Message----- From: Erwin [mailto:erwin@;isiz.com] Sent: 04 November 2002 11:27 AM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: [PHP] Re: Battling with highlighting search criteria David Russell wrote: > Hey there > > I told you my brain was feeling fuzzy :) > > This works great.

Try the following one: $result = "This is a test, isn't it?"; $search = "is"; $result = preg_replace( '/(' . $search . ')/i', "<span class=\"highlight\">\$1</span>", $result ); Grtz Erwin -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
