       foreach ($atagArray as $stagName => $replace)
           $tagEnd = preg_replace("/\W/sUi", "", $stagName);
           $sText = preg_replace(
       foreach ($sTagArray as $stagName => $replace)
           if (eregi("[)(#$]", $stagName))
               $stagNameNew = preg_replace("#([\)\(\$\#])#", "\\ \\1", $stagName);
               $stagNameNew = preg_replace("#( +)#", "", $stagNameNew);
               $sTagArray[ $stagNameNew ] = array('tag' => $replace['tag']);
               unset($sTagArray[ $stagName ]);
       foreach ($sTagArray as $stagName => $replace)
           $sText= preg_replace("|\[$stagName\]|sUi", "$replace[tag]", $sText);
       return $sText;
