Finding and Replacing not performing


I have a specific document where when I search for a specific paragraph and try to replace the contents, fail as it cannot appear to find the text.

The original text to find is coming from a Document first saved as HTML. Then the HTML presented to the user and HTML stripped text is used to for the basis of the search.

Most of the time this works however I have one instance where the text is not found.

After looking closer at the HTML conversion of the doc I can see the paragraphs contain a lot of repeated elements with the same font style attribute…

Can this be the reason the find and replace is not working because the paragraphs in the document have a lot of style information

I am using the basic search and replace call on the document, not a custom Replace class.

Any thoughts / ideas appreciated,
