Find and replace tags

The Find and Replace dialog box enables you to locate a specified tag in one or more web pages or in all pages in your site. You can specify the direction to look in the page, and set basic or advanced search criteria.

When tags are found, you can replace or delete the tag and its content, replace only the content, add content after or before the tag, or set an attribute.
