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  
care about.

put "& &, < <, > >" into searchStrings
repeat for each item STRR in searchStrings
    replace (word 1 of STRR) with (word 2 of STRR) in htmlBlock
end repeat
