Get text between 2 html tags c#

I am trying to get the data between the html (span) provided (in this case 31)

Here is the original code (from inspect elements in chrome)


<span id="point_total" class="tooltip" oldtitle="Note: If the number is black, your points are actually a little bit negative. Don't worry, this just means you need to start subbing again." aria-describedby="ui-tooltip-0">31</span>



I have a rich textbox which contains the source of the page, here is the same code but in line 51 of the rich textbox:


<DIV id=point_display>You have<BR><SPAN id=point_total class=tooltip jQuery16207621750175125325="23" oldtitle="Note: If the number is black, your points are actually a little bit negative. Don't worry, this just means you need to start subbing again.">17</SPAN><BR>Points </DIV><IMG style="FLOAT: right" title="Gain subscribers" border=0 alt="When people subscribe to you, you lose a point" src="http://static.subxcess.com/images/page/decoration/remove-1-point.png"> </DIV>



How would I go about doing this? I have tried several methods and none of them seem to work for me.

I am trying to retrieve the point value from this page: http://www.subxcess.com/sub4sub.php
The number changes depending on who subs you.

Answer

You could be incredibly specific about it:

var regex = new Regex(@"<span id=""point_total"" class=""tooltip"" oldtitle="".*?"" aria-describedby=""ui-tooltip-0"">(.*?)</span>");

var match = regex.Match(@"<span id=""point_total"" class=""tooltip"" oldtitle=""Note: If the number is black, your points are actually a little bit negative.  Don't worry, this just means you need to start subbing again."" aria-describedby=""ui-tooltip-0"">31</span>");

var result = match.Groups[1].Value;
