...and my thanks to Alex Tweedly for cluing me in to the joys of
messageChunk(). I've been seriously neglecting that function.

I want to point out, though, now that I've been fiddling with it, that
the use of the (?.) function in regex is a *necessity* for parsing
text this way. It isn't listed in the documentation for the regex
commands, but it's what gets you past the linefeeds.

if messageChunk(someText, "(?.)<BODY>(.+)</BODY>", tStart, tEnd) then
  -- do something with the text here
end if
