<Text to replace>: Character string
Text to find and to replace in the document. If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the document will not be modified.
<Replacement text>: Character string
Character string that will replace <Text to replace>. If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), all the occurrences of <Text to replace> will be deleted
<Options>: Optional constant (or combination of constants)
Search options for the text to replace:
IgnoreCaseCase and accent insensitive search (ignores uppercase and lowercase differences).
WholeWordSearch for the whole word (enclosed in punctuation characters or in space characters).

By default, the search is case-sensitive: the searched text and the text to find must have the same case. To perform a case-insensitive search, use the IgnoreCase constant.
