is there a simple way to convert a html-string to a plain text-string?

In my opinion do you have to explain this more, because a html-string is a
plain text-string?

i have a string with this content:
text text text <br> text text <br>
<a href="link">link</a>


so what i want is a method to convert the string above in this one:
text text text
text text

Your HTML sample is absolute not clean what can be in reality as well.
However I understand now that you need a regex or a routine that tells

every word that start after > until the next < is reached?

I am absolute no Regex expert.
I can tell it in a routine however I think that Regex is more in it place.

Maybe this links can help you.



Otherwise maybe somebody who knows better Regex than me can help you. (That
is almost everybody. I have to go to those websides as well to create this)

I hope it helps something.
