I am opening a connection to an apache server sending a get and then I am reading from the socket.
All works finde except that I am getting some strange strings disrupting the html

<FON\r\nffb\r\nT COLOR ...


They are not frequent ( a few of them) but of course make live hard. 
I cant observe them with lynx --source they dont occure. 

I am trying a workaround with sub. But it removes only the first occurence.
How I can force sub to remove all occurences of a pattern and not only the first?
