Regex to remove all tags from a web page

Hi all,

I searched the list archive and the net for a regex that would allow  
to retrieve the meaningful text from any web page, stripping all html  
tags, extra code, etc. but I did not find something really  
convincing :-(
Any help would be much appreciated :-)

PS. I don't want to use "set the htmlText/get text" using a field:  
this way crashes Rev unpredictably when doing batch processing.

Best Regards from Paris,

Eric Chatonet.
