How find and replace non-printable characters -zwnj and zwj?

Hey
I am struggling with such a problem:
In the file I have a non-printable characters - zwnj and zwj
They do not see them in the html code but I know they are there
Raport counts them
I need a way to precisely determine where in the text they are.
Searching with regex = \ u200D does not give a result
Thanks in advance

Since Sigil uses PCRE, you'll have to use the following expessions:

Code:
\x{200D}
\x{200C}
If you want to replace all occurrences with entities check out DiapDealer's ShadyCharacters plugin.

You could also add those two entities to the Preserve Entities list in Sigil's preferences. Then after a save, those characters will be converted to entities. It's just a matter of normal Find and Replace after that.
