That seems to be finding all occurrences of <span class="italics"></span> that enclose 2 or more word characters. And it's still returning one-word instances, while skipping things like:
Code:
<span class="italics">Three weeks later</span></p>
And definitely skipping multiple word instances that contain punctuation and/or quotes:
Code:
<span class="italics">Well, dammit, itís been two days.</span>
What else ya got?
