I would like to find and replace as below using wild card. More particularly, I would like to find any character of one or two digits of the following patterns in MS word and get rid of the strange characters before and after the real characters.

```
< 1 > -> 1
< 10 > -> 10
< c > -> c
< + > -> +
< ++ > -> ++
```

I tried by the following formula using wildcard pattern, but it only works with numbers of one or two digits. How can I do this with all other characters of one or two digits?

```
Find: < ([0-9]{1,2}) >
Replace: \1
```
