Edit: Okay, I found it out myself: The SGF file is a zip file, so editing it is simple. That solves a lot of my problems until S&R is done.
actually, this is precisely how i've been working, but i just open the file in sigil, copy the entire code window to notepad (ctrl A ctrl C, then ctrl V in notepad) and do all my searches there. then i delete the code from sigil and paste in the updated version, and save. it's a bit less efficient than being able to search directly in sigil but it works quite well nonetheless.

and it's nice having two windows so i can easily display (for instance) my css codes in sigil while i'm working in notepad, if i want to update some styles or refer to them.
