StringInStr finds Search String - StringRegExp does not

Recommended Posts

The reproducer below shows two string searches.
First using StringInStr.
Then using StringRegExp.

Both succeed when the $sPattern is 'eader">Special Circumstances'
But if a single letter "h" is added to the front of the $sPattern,
making the sPattern  'header">Special Circumstances'
the StringRegExp fails to match
While  StringInStr succeeds.
? What am I doing wrong ?
