There's a freeware utility I've just started using called Search & Replace
that takes care of this problem rather nicely--I'm using it on the Win95
platform, and I believe it's also available for Windows 3.x. It's widely
available for downloading over the Web...I found it at the TUCOWS site
(http://tucows.com). If you've just gotta have a Mac-side tool for this,
SiteMill is probably the ticket--albeit at somewhat greater cost!
