      There's not an easy way to capture these. The space is really the
      constant that I'm depending on to delimit each attribute. I looked into
      modifying it to look for either a > or another attribute with a value...
      but then it actually captures the name of the tag itself, which in this
      example is: "META".

      So no this would not work with spaces. You can look at this to be a
      great first stab at cleaning up your code but not an all-in-one
      solution. If EditPlus supported Perl regular expressions instead of
      just POSIX we would have a lot more power. There are some great options
      like look-ahead parameters that could be considered, but this is not
      currently allowed in EditPlus, unfortunately.

      Good luck,
