Aw, come on, guys. Sed? Please.

perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' *.html
perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' */*.html
perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' */*/*.html
perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' */*/*/*.html
perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' */*/*/*/*.html
perl -pi -e 's|rrggbb|r1g1b1|g' */*/*/*/*/*.html

And that's just from the command line. It would only be a couple more
lines to do it from a script. Things were fine before they ported Mosaic
to Windows :( Hehehe.

(n.b. I realize CSS is better, just having a bit of fun)
