Description
I wrote this sweet little (well, not so little really) reg to extract links from an HTML source.... it is very robust, give it a try. The only limitation I have discovered is that it can't match invalid HTML...
Matches
<a href='javascript:functionA();'><i>this text is italicized</i></a>
Non-Matches
<A href='#'><P</A></P>

I'm writing a site map creator with php and this regex works great. The creator will soon be available on <a href="http://www.jonasfam.com">the Jonas Family Website</a>.
