Hi,

I am wondering if there is any way to use vi to search/replace elements. For example, can I search replace </A> with </a>?

I know how to do it for "HREF" (:1,$s/HREF/href/g). However, with an element with a single letter or commonly used letter combo, I can't figure out how to replace.

Thanks!

try:
(:1,$s/A>/a>/g)

you will have problems with </A> because of the /, but A> works ok
