When you mentioned cutting & pasting it made me think about the
tools you might use to edit HTML. If you're a curmudgeon like me
that still likes to edit raw HTML, you might want to try Homesite.

I've tried tons of HTMLS tools, and I think Homesite has the best
features for the price. Older versions are even FREE.

For instance, imagine doing a search & replace on all the HTML
documents currently open. Then imagine doing a search and
replace on all the documents in an entire directory. It even
has a built-in browser. And it assigns colors to each type of
HTML tag as you code, if you make a mistake the coloring breaks,
so mistakes are obvious and easy to find.
