Remove HTML from strings in C#.NET

If you want to remove tags such as HTML or XML (basically anything between < and >) from a string, use this regular expression to replace them with another value (nothing in this example):

string regularExpresion = "<[^<>]*>";

string body = "<html>this<br />is<br />a<br />test</html>";

Regex regex = new Regex(regularExpresion, RegexOptions.IgnoreCase | RegexOptions.Multiline);

string bodyNoHTML = regex.Replace(body, "").Trim();

<html>1<br />2<br />2<br />4</html>
