Hi everyone,

I've created a customized Simplified English word list. In this list
I've identified numerous "illegal" words. Now I need a quick way to
check a document to make sure these words haven't been used.

I'm using FrameMaker 7.0. Does anyone know of any way that I can do a
"mass" Find/Replace through a document? Maybe there's a plug-in that
might make this easier that having to search for each illegal word
individually... We're going to be switching to Structured FrameMaker
with XML in 2006, maybe this is easier to do in Structured Frame?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated,
