  1. If you are compiling with strict mode, you'll get this warning on line to call the replace method:

    warning BC42025: Access of shared member, constant member, enum member or nested type through an instance; qualifying expression will not be evaluated.

    Any idea how the replace method should be called to avoid this warning?

    Strict mode set to true can not be set to false in my case.

  2. Instead of this:

    oReg = New Regex("")
    sOut = oReg.Replace(sInput, "<[^<>]+>", "")

    Use this:
    sOut = Regex.Replace(sInput, "<[^<>]+>", "")

    To avoid this warning when compiling with strict mode set to true:

    warning BC42025: Access of shared member, constant member, enum member or nested type through an instance; qualifying expression will not be evaluated.
