    My best friend used to spend 15 minutes writing a little custom search program for me in visual basic, but since he died, it have not been able to easily make changes like I used to. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good search and replace program that can do something like this to html pages:

    ( keeps reading my html and converting it so I had to type the word next to img)

    Find "less than symbol"img
    then find the next >
    if  > has a " in the space before it
    then change "> to "/>

    Bryzen saidCould you not just use notepad crtl + h to open replace and type in "> in find and "/> in replace?

    If not can you post the vb code and I'll take a look at it.

    I have over 700 pages to go through and it has to have the < img in front of it so it does not mess up the other tags.

    Thanks though. I don't have the code. My friend never kept that the little stuff that he made for me because it was so easy for him to throw a custom new one together. His stuff was all in vb6 which is another issue that I will have to deal with later on another issue.

    You would think that there would be a basic program that could do the search and replace. I don't think that what I'm looking for is uncommon.
