    Default Problem with Regular Expression

    Hu Guys!

    I need some help with regular expression. I have to identify in an HTML code the following tag:

    <username/>

    However, i need to consider also the fact that after "<" there might be some blank characters, after "username" there might be the same situation, same thing for "/". So the situation is the following:

    "<" zero or more spaces "username" zero or more spaces "/" zero or more spaces ">"

    Now, I do not want the solution, but some hint to get that.

    Thanks,

    Luca

    Maybe something like this:

    ^[<] \s* [username] \s* [\] \s* $[>]

    ??
