Is there a way to do a Search and Replace from the editor in HTML-mode?
Plugins I found work in the visual editor, we are working only in HTML-mode, therefore -not- appropriate for what we do.
I would appreciate to find a code snippet or plugin for HTML-mode (did I miss the one you found?)

Thanks in advance for time and effort.

Why don't you add a custom button with the functionality you require? You could attach a JavaScript method to do the search and replace as requested?

Hope this helps...

To create a btn is not such a problem(imho). Would appreciate to have the right function/code snippet. Anyone? – Charles Jun 7 '12 at 6:23
