Regex examples

I'd like to see if I can collect Regular Expressions (PCRE format as introduced in Sigil 0.5.0) used for common or difficult issues, and maybe add them to the FAQ, etc. Partly so I can have a list to refer to when needed, but also to collect a lot of what's probably already been mentioned in this forum. And maybe to find out if there isn't a way to do a replacement that's needed.

For instance, is there a regex to do other types of replacement but only inside body tags?

Is there one only for the actual text - words not part of a tag name or attribute? Words that are only aprt of a tag name or attribute?

If you have any suggestions for the above cases, or any other useful Regex expressions please post them.
