Description:
I refer to similar instruction at: http://www.mind-pioneer.com/services/497_Regular_expression_replace.html

I have many files 1.htm, 2.htm, 3.htm... how do I replace all the tags <hr /> in these files?
Answer:
Hint: You need to Download and install "Replace Pioneer" on windows platform to finish following steps.
Assume you want to replace all tag <hr /> with some other strings.

1. open "Tools->Batch Runner" menu
2. drag all html files from windows File Browser to "Batch Runner" window
3. click "Fast Replace" button
(1) click "Add"
in "search" entry, fill:

in "replace" entry, fill the new string you want to write
click "ok"
(2) because your search and replace string are fixed(do not have wildcard), you'd better uncheck option of "Regular Expression"
(3) click "Start", done!

Note: in above step(2), if you enable the option of "Regular Expression", you must put a backslash before each of special characters like: <br \/>
