Why use Regex, when you can do it in a in my eyes more describing, and at
least quicker performing way, using normal code. (This does not mean that
you should forever avoid Regex, however if not needed I would try to avoid

Public Class Sample
Public Shared Sub Main()
Dim str As String = "<font class=""sub-row"">in
Dim firstStart As Integer = str.IndexOf("sub-row") + 9
Dim firstEnd As Integer = str.IndexOf("&nbsp;/")
Dim secondStart As Integer = str.IndexOf("/&nbsp;") + 7
Dim secondEnd As Integer = str.IndexOf("</font>")
Dim v1 As String = str.Substring(firstStart, firstEnd - firstStart)
Dim v2 As String = str.Substring(secondStart, secondEnd - secondStart)
End Sub
End Class

I hope this helps,
