    Text::Balanced does it properly even if there is some funny stuff between the brackets. Look into the documentation for more info. But of course you can also use some regex to remove the strings in a simple way.

    $data = <<_END_; <script language="JavaScript"> alert("Boo!") </script > _END_
    A /s modifier would help a little, but doesn't solve everything. Eg, what about this tag?
    $data = qq{ <img src="hello.jpg" alt="x>y" width="60" height="60" /> } +;

    Lesson: never treat HTML parsing as a "back of an envelope" exercise :)
