Some other text processing system that allow greedy searching may prefer
a different regular expression: select
    "<!-- Start.*?\.Net -->.*?<!-- End.*?\.Net -->"
replace it with 
(The .*? means a shortest-possible match. Also, some processors do not
include whitespace or newlines in ".", there is often an invocation option
to configure this.)
