I have a text document that contains various mark up tags such as </verse>. It's a list of song lyrics from OpenLP. I want to strip off all the tags- the <,> and the text between. I know search and replace with Regular Expressions will do it for me, but I have a brain block when it comes to Reg Ex. Can somebody please tell me how to do this?

Search for: <[^>]*>
Replace with: (nothing)

[^>] matches any character except ">".
[^>]* matches zero or more of such characters.
<[^>]*> matches "<", any text not including ">", and ">", i.e. everything from "<" up to and including the first ">" thereafter.

I trust this helps.
