@meme-- what does (?si) mean? Also, I haven't been able to find anything that lists these kinds of statements (eg (?si), (?s), (?U), etc...), do you know of a website that does?

Thanks meme. I'm still struggling with understanding part of the regex though, specifically:

Code:
(?![^<>]*>)
The double negative is scrambling my brain. Think you could sort me out?

Thanks, Meme. That helped. Don´t need Santa now.

However, some tags with <&nbsp;> got erased as well. Have to solve that.
Will check if some other tags are in danger as well.

Sorry, the regex was borrowed from the Regex Examples thread and adapted - you'll need a regex guru around here to explain it.

<&nbsp;> is a bit odd. &nbsp; is an HTML entity not a tag, so it won't be inside < >. Haven't tested it with those.

PDF may be the way to go if you must have a fixed layout. But it has its own problems. You may be able to work around these by limiting the amount of text per page and size of images so the page can be increased in size without everything going sideways.
Not special or fixed, but SPECIFIC layout, I would say. Different chapters being built in different ways.

I think I have digested the hard fact that in an e-book you cannot have control over how the book looks to the reader. PDF is not the way I want to go here.

At beginning of the Group created to change the characters, have another regex which will alter any entities to include '<' & '>', then also have one at end of group which removes them again.
EDIT: remove space after ';' chars (poxy smilies )
EDIT (Jellby): no need to remove anything, you can use the [noparse] tag when posting
Before
Find: (&.{,5};)
Replace: <\1>

After
Find <(&.{,5};)>
Replace: \1
