Thanks for all of the suggestions, and especially for the tip about  
the shortcut keys. I didn't realize they even existed! Perhaps this  
should be added as a 'call-out' in the basic editing documentation page?

As to a search/replace function, one solution is for Firefox users to  
install the "It's All Text!" add-on (from  
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4125). This provides an  
'Edit' button at the bottom of text-box forms that opens the text in  
an external editor of your choice. It's quite handy for these
