Well, I understand that much but it's just text when I'm searching & replacing. Again, there were only 33 matches for my search. Sigil even said only 33 replacements were made. Why then, do I have 477 instances?
As far as not ending the span in a known location, that isn't really an issue. The span ends on each paragraph, like I expected and wanted it to.
None of what you pointed out explains to me why Sigil made 33 replacements but I then search and find 477 results. It makes no sense to me.
