Regex getting hashtags

Stephen Sizer asked in Ruby

I'm wanting to capture all hastags from the richtext field. I thought I had a solution until I came across testing where the richtext editor put HTML entites into the markup.

/#([\w]+)/
<p>#ruby you&#39;re amazing</p>

so at the moment its getting #ruby, #39 any help would be appreciated.

thanks,
Steve
