Is it just my browser or is this article missing some code? eg all of it?
This article is missing some article. I was surprised that such would be featured.
I assume we all can write code. What makes SSC articles enjoyable is in the tale that tells us why code/script was needed and the how/why some particular code is an optimal (or spackle) solution.
I also couldn't see the script in the textarea and didn't feel like jumping through hoops to use script manager format. Why a UDF? I'm always wary of UDF-based solutions.
Perhaps more importantly, under what circumstances would someone likely mangle a set of characters so badly that this approach would be required to find the word(s) they might have meant?
