hi everyone,


did not know what to make the subject, but here is what I want to do:


I have a string, which gets returned to me from a linux app on my server, it looks something like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<META NAME="GENERATOR" CONTENT="OpenOffice.org 3.2  (Linux)">
<META NAME="AUTHOR" CONTENT="Administrator">
<META NAME="CREATED" CONTENT="20110106;14170000">
<META NAME="CHANGED" CONTENT="20110522;16540000">
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
	@page { margin: 0.26in }
	P { margin-bottom: 0.15in; direction: ltr; color: #000000; line-height: 0.15in; text-align: justify; widows: 2; orphans: 2 }
	P.western { font-family: "Arial", sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; so-language: en-US }
	P.cjk { font-family: "Batang", "바탕", serif; font-size: 10pt }
	P.ctl { font-family: "Times New Roman", serif; font-size: 10pt; so-language: ar-SA }
	A:link { color: #0000ff }
<BODY LANG="en-US" TEXT="#000000" LINK="#0000ff" DIR="LTR" STYLE="border: 5.05pt double #000000; padding: 0.67in 0.92in">

<P>I want this and the tags around it, just not the html, head, body and their closing tags.</P>



within the body, the tags are each styled for example: <p style="color: red"></p> so I cannot just get rid of all html, I want to get only all the content within the body tags, but without the body tags obviously :)

strip_tags does not work as i need, I only want to strip certain tags.


If someone can help me with this i will much appreciate it.
