Thank you very much g_bor.  I believe you've given me the information I need to 
make this work.  I think I may be able to get away with regexp substitution for 
this very simple change.  If you know of an example in the source tree of 
regexp substitution of the top of your head please let me know, otherwise, I'm 
sure I'll be able to find an example on my own.
