I wrote a perl script with a nested tag killer as tmCommand. Fine. It  
works and I believe I caught 99% of all exceptions within HTML/XML ;)
And it is fast even for large document with 10000 lines (ca. 100ms).

If my document is larger than ca. 540kB the tmCommand doesn't work. I  
don't know why, but I guess there is a maximum size for passing  
parameter, or what ever.

OK. This script outputs the offset of the start tag, the length of  
the found text chunk, and I can output the entire text chunk.

Now my question:
Is there a way to highlight this text by using a macro/command  
WITHOUT TMTOOLS? I can copy this text into the clipboard but then ??
Any ideas?

With TMTOOLS it wouldn't be a problem. Also the text size doesn't
