Hello,

I'm trying to match a regular expression on a string that contains 
new-line characters.

e.g.

>> str = "hello <html> something \n</html> world"
=> "hello <html> something \n</html> world"
>> str =~ /(<html>.*<\/html>)/
=> nil

I want an RE that matches this string, but '.' doesn't match the \n 
character.  I guess I could replace the \n's by something else, but I'd 
rather not alter the original string if I can avoid it.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
