Finding Smart Tags

I've recently been bumping into "smart tags" that usually mess up paragraph formatting - they seem to come from some editing in Word, somewhere, sometime. The Quality Check plug-in finds books that contain them. But once I have the book open in the Editor, the problem is finding them in the book.

They have all kinds of formats, apparently:

Code:
<address w:st="on" class="calibre10">
<street w:st="on">
<city w:st="on">
<postalcode w:st="on">
<state>
and on and on.

Short of making a list and just going after them one at a time, does anybody know of a way to find many of them at once? I've messed with regex for hours, but it is always too greedy to be useful.

Thanks!

Since they all have w:st in them, simply search for that.

Yeah, those are the easy ones. Actually, more have "st=" than "w:st", but there seem to be no end of variations. I'll just do saved searches for the more common varieties.

The one good thing is, a given book seems to use only one variety, so when you find the first one, you know mostly what to look for. Just takes a long time.
