no the problem is i don't know what is between me and you so i can only supply those two. some junk characters are being placed in between. i just gave it as example and said i want to pass me and you and get rid of everyting in between that

function removeStr(str, start, end){
var pattern = new RegExp(start + ".*" + end, "gi");
return str.replace(pattern, start + " " + end);

var s = "Hello this is me how are you doing";
alert(removeStr(s, "me", "you"));
