I want to remove all the spaces, carriage returns, and "comments" (the text inside the <>'s) from this document:

I tried the regular expression ( )|(\n)(|<.*>) , but that removes everything but the -1 at the end. It doesn't do that if I remove the |(<.*>) , but then it doesn't remove the <> comments.
