Search and replace

In MS Word

  • Find what: \[n([0-9]{1,})\] Replace: '''[n\1]''' <span id="n\1" /> [replace e.g. [1] with [1]
  • Find folio number: [0-9][0-9][rv][ab] (or [AB])
    • Add anchor to f number Find= (\[f[0-9][0-9][rv][ab]\]) Replace= [\1] <span id=\1 />
    • Thus [f48ra] goes to [f48ra] <span id=f48ra />
  • search ([a-z])-([a-z]) replace \1\2
    • replaces hyphens separating parts of words (or whole words, be careful)
  • Replace span version of page number with template version
    • Search \<span id=p([0-9]{1,})\>\</span\> replace {{p|\1}}

See also Using wildcards with MS word.

  • To add wiki italics, do standard search and replace with nothing in the 'find what' box, with font set to italic, and ''^&'' in replace.

In mediawiki

The mediawiki search and replace is a real creature of darkness. It's very useful and necessary when you have already installed the pages there are too many them to copy back into Word, and it's very powerful, but one mistake and you are destroyed. Also the syntax and escape characters are entirely different from Word. Starting this section for some experiments.

MS word


  • [[Imagefilename|thumb|right|260px|Description]]
  • <div style="clear:both;"></div> - stops images wrapping


  • <center> - to centre the table
  • border=1 cellpadding=10 width=85% - to reduce the width. Proportions within the table will still be preserved.
  • Sorting tables: add class="wikitable sortable"
