thank you, and sorry, if i had formulated wrong, but the "SOMETEXT#X"
is a random STRING, like:

$ cat testfile.txt
alsjflsajfkljasdf
<br><font size=3>asfklasjlkyxcvo</font><br>
<br><font size=3>kldfjlkasjdfasdf</font><br>
kasfjxcvklajdflas

yxcvkjasafjads
<br><font size=3>asdfjkldjlasj</font><br>
</font></div></body></html>
uiyxzckjhasfsd
$



$ awk 'BEGIN {sawpattern=0} "^SOMETEXT, ^SOMETEXT" {if (($0
~/<br><font size=3>SOMETEXT/ ) && (sawpattern == 0)) {sawpattern=1}
else {sawpattern=0;print $0}}' testfile.txt
alsjflsajfkljasdf
<br><font size=3>asfklasjlkyxcvo</font><br>
<br><font size=3>kldfjlkasjdfasdf</font><br>
kasfjxcvklajdflas

yxcvkjasafjads
<br><font size=3>asdfjkldjlasj</font><br>
</font></div></body></html>
