I hate my first post to be a question rather than an answer but needs must when the devil drives.

I have an epub where speech quotes are missing from the start of the line

e.g.

Quote:
<span class="bold calibre4">The gets one," ff 11
So my first task was finding an expression that would find lines where this occurs.

This seems to work (I know there are cases where it fail, but I'm just finding and not auto-fixing)

Quote:
"\>[^"](\w*\W*)*"
However when I try it in Sigil it completely fails.

Is there something special about Sigil's regex that I'm overlooking?

Many thanks in advance
