    I'm looking for
    $startpos = strpos($page, '<div id="yada yada"') + 7;

    I want to set $endpos to the position of the closing div, "</div>". If I do that, it will read the first closing div and not the one that I want. How do I find the next /div after the start one I found?

    Count the number of opening div tags following the one you want then find the n+1 instance of the closing div tags.
