    Question How to batch find/change html documents
    (I found various other posts asking about this but no soultion in each case.)

    When downloading websites (all pages of one domain) with an application named Site Crawler, all the files named Something%3FSomething.jpg get translated into Something?Something.jpg on the Mac. When trying to view the saved html files in Windows, the jpg files are not found, because Windows seems to translate the files from OS X from Something?Something.jpg to Something Something.jpg

    Therefore I'd like to delete all the "?" in the file names (no problem) and change all the links in the html files (delete %3F from each link) in each source code.

    How can I batch this process:
    Open HTML file
    Find/Replace %3F with nothing

    I have the lastest version of Dreamweaver and Espresso, if that helps.
    Thanks for your time!

    Found this application doing the job: Search&Replace
    Download Search&Replace for Mac - Search and replace batch processor for text files. MacUpdate Mac Software Downloads

    I'm surprised it can't be done with Espresso or Dreamweaver, can it?
