looking for a list of tags with code between begin & end tag

by rondvorak / June 15, 2009 11:31 AM PDT

I'm writing a program that reads an HTML file, then alters text that is viewable by the users. So I don't want to alter the text within a tag. I also don't want to edit the text that is between <script ..> and </script> or between <style ..> and </style> because that defines the way the HTML file works. These are the only two tags I know of that has code between their begin and end tags. Are there any other tags that I need to be concerned with?

I would also like to know if the tag list at http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ is a complete list of HTML tags?

Thanks you.

I thought about it some more after my original post. The <xml> tag is not included in the list. Anybody know why?

Just curious.

Thanks. That's the answer I was hoping for. I feel pretty good in assuming that the list is complete, at least for practical purposes.
