    You would use Regular Expressions to do that very easily for you.

    In .NET, they are located in System.Text.RegularExpressions. Take some time to learn both regular expressions and the framework classes.

    Hint: Use verbatim string literals when building the expressions. Verbatim string literals are like "regular" string literals, except it doesn't include escape characters.

    string regex = "\\s*[a-zA-Z]+\\s*";
    is the same as...
    string regex = @"\s*[a-zA-Z]+\s*";

    Note the @ before the quotes. It becomes a bit more readable when you don't have to worry about escape characters.
