    I'm helping to create a website for my boss. I am copy/pasting descriptions of products, but I need to replace all the bullet points manually with <il>. It's super time consuming and I'd like to find a quicker way to complete this project. Weekends are for comic book reading and video game playing! Poop on working weekends! Does anyone here know how I can do a "Find and Replace"?

    get a program like dream weaver,


    it does all of the work for you, all you have to do is paste and it does most of the html for you

    I would look into automating it a little more with some scripting language (Perl, PHP or ASP) and a database.

    If you are going to be doing any Web design in the future I suggest you learn Perl,Php or ASP. Or at least learn how to install and setup these types of scripts. It will save you alot of time and money in the log run. Whenever I need a script or some automation for a website I usually search HotScripts.com for a script that suits my needs.

    I use a web authoring program called arachnophilia from http://www.arachnoid.com/arachnophilia/

    that has a very good inbuilt find & replace and can be set to find & replace in all open html pages

    Did you know that also the Microsoft frontpage program has search and replace
    capabilities......
    I've used it several times, works flawlessly for simple html.
    It can search and replace several pages (the whole site) in one go.

    Um, from what I remember even Notepad, the most basic and fundamental of text editors has a search/find and replace function built-in, I believe Wordpad, Word, ConText, NotePad Pro, etc etc all have find and replace functions built-in.
    As to the copy pasting of content from questionable sources, I would consider looking into whether or not the source has copyrights on that intellectual material and whether or not this forum was the right one to post about Web Design.
