Editing code view in Sigil

The editing of an html file in the code view mode is hampered by Sigil trying to be clever. If I try to change all instances of an html tag ("<blockquote>", for example, Sigil will do a Find/Replace on the opening tag no problem. But when I try to edit the remaining closing tag ("</blockquote"> for example, I can't do it. Sigil refuses to do anything because now the opening & closing tags don't match any more.

The only way I can complete the "Find & Replace" is to copy the entire file and move it to Notepad, and then copy the file back to Sigil. This seems much too clumsy for a smart application like Sigil. Is there anyway to do large edits without confounding Sigil like this?
