find replace bug?

i try to remove a redundant class, using:
find
span class="calibre3"
replace all
span

it destroys the <> syntax which surrounds the span, both when run as normal, & when run as regex
i.e. it leaves this mess throughout
&lt; span&gt;

same happens if i try find
<span class="calibre3">
replace all
<span>

it does not happen for a single find + replace next but I want to remove hundreds of these

they are in constructs like:
<div class="calibre15">
<span class="calibre3">Yuen giggled, but Streicher sighed. "Dr. McLeod, must everything be a joke to you?"</span>
</div>

why won't replace all work properly?



PS i can find
class="calibre3"
and replace with blank - that works OK

I can then find
<span>
and replace with blank & the the closing matching tags then disappear also

so: pretty sure its a side effect of the option which used to appear as a brush thingie - tidy ? but don't see how to toggle it on/off in v6
