Thanks, Chris. :-)  But now that I think about it, Jeremy's solution
makes more sense: seeing as George is using regex to parse the number, he
might as well use a better regex to get what he needs.

Actually, the best solution would use a XML library.  I know Perl can has
XML stuff.  I would be surprised if PHP did not.
