      Hi Chris:

      I haven't looked closely at your regexp string - my eyes cross looking at
      all those "{[a-zA-Z]+}\"'s ;-(

      but I think its going to be almost impossible to construct a regexp which
      will handle arbitrary orders, not to mention that a single regexp won't
      match across multiple lines.

      If this is being done on HTML that you author/change/publish maybe you could
      have a series of regexp's in a single clip, one for each new order that you

      Otherwise, I think you have to attack it by selecting the entire <embed ....
      > (using ^!select HTMLTAG (?)), move it to a temporary buffer and fix it up
      attribute by attribute then replace the still selected source in the
      original by your fixed up version.

      Sounds ugly, but its probably easier to debug/alter after the fact too.

      Regards ... Alec
