Using regular expressions in Dreamweaver

The ability to find and replace text is expected in even the simplest of editing programs. But what if you’re looking for values likely to be different every time, for example, phone numbers displayed in the standard North American format? Every number is different. Some numbers might have parentheses around the area code; others might not have parentheses. Wouldn’t it be great if you could perform a find-and-replace operation that strips or adds the parentheses while preserving the actual phone numbers? Well, you can.
The answer is to use a regular expression (often shortened to regex). Regular expressions are patterns that describe character combinations in text. As long as what you’re looking for fits a regular pattern, a regex can be created to find it. Many people call this a wildcard search, but regular expressions are much more powerful than searches using wildcard characters.
