The next consideration is html entities, such as & < >
and various vowels, etc. Do a Google for 'html entities' and you
should be able to find convenient tables to copy-paste the ones you
put "& &, < <, > >" into searchStrings
repeat for each item STRR in searchStrings
replace (word 1 of STRR) with (word 2 of STRR) in htmlBlock
