    Default RegExp theory ?

    I have to run a RexExp on a page of text at least 7 times to clear it up (this is a slow process). One of my patterns is using at least 30 *or&#039;s* (&#124). Is it faster to use more calls with less "or&#039;s" or use less calls with longer strings (or&#039;s)?<BR><BR>Also I have calling a function that opnes and closes the RegExp each time. Should I keep it open for all five and then close it?<BR><BR>Thank you,<BR>jc
