That's ok with a 10 or even 50 pages, but I maintain A *fast* growing site
of now well over 200 pages, with content being changed by a team of people
on a daily basis. I simply cannot go through every page changing CLASSes
whenever I decide to make links pointing to academic sites a different
colour, not can I afford the time to go through every page looking for <INS
date="..."> blocks with a date of 1997. Also, they (the other authors) are
*bound* to forget to add the correct CLASS attributes in all their new

Regexps would simplify these tasks a great deal.
