Using StringInStr with quotes in substring

Recommended Posts


I'm having problems using StringInStr where the substring contains quote marks.

This example works ok:-

$sHTML= 'some words <td class="names" width="50"> some more words'

$location=StringInStr($sHTML,'<td class="names" width="50">')


But in the following example, the function StringInStr($sHTML,'<td class="names" width="50">') fails to locate occurrences in the HTML body.

$sHTML = _IEBodyReadHTML ($oIE)

$location= StringInStr($sHTML,'<td class="names" width="50">')

Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Help will be appreciated.

There must be a difference somewhere in the string so the easiest is always to write the string ($sHTML) to a file and look at it with a Hexeditor.
