Indeed you can David. But the RH7 verison of the Shed editor doesn't support
replace. Instead, download the SHED.EXE version 3.5 from the Microsoft web
site, which does have a Replace option. You may have to download the entire
WinHelp Workshop to get it but the workshop components may come in handy
when RH gets finicky.
