Regexp and header/footer problems

Apologies...this is a repost of something I added to an aging thread. I have read all of the old threads of problems with header/footer removal and regexp processing, but it is extremely unclear what the current status is. Below is my repost with a clearly identified issue. I'd just like to know when something is planned for the header/footer processing. Thanks

<p> and </p> just don't seem to want to match in the regexp. Even when I use a blanket expression such as this: Text.*$, if the $ envelops a <p> or </p> it doesn't work. I have to explicitly make sure that $ does not match one of these, so I use: Text.*More text. As long as "More text" finishes just before the <p></p> it is all good.

Any ideas when this will be fixed? Removing headers and footers at the moment is more about guesswork and experimentation.
