    How to find a substring in XML-lookslike string?

    843789
      Hi,

      I have a question and wondering if anyone can help me with it.

      We have Java tool that does a string replacement inside another string (that is actually an XML request). It works fine when searching for a simple substring (that exists within 1 line of the XML string).

      But when I'm trying to find and replace a substring that covers more then 1 line of XML request - it does not work. And I'm not sure what is wrong or (more importantly) how to make it work.

      There is no return or new-line chars seen in the XML request.

      To make it more clear - here is what I have and trying to do:

      <a>
      <a>
      <b>
      <c>
      <d> </d>
      <c>
      <c>
      </c>
      </c>
      </c>
      </b>
      </a>
      </a>

      If I'll seach for either <c> OR </c> OR <d> </d> it all works fine ... BUT if Itry to find

      </c>
      </b>

      which will be copied directly from the XML request and past into field - thus it will look like this (horisontal line instead of vertical) </c> </b> - it does not work
