I have a large collection of html files (thousands), and need to change a single character that wasn't displaying properly on some browsers. Is there a quick and efficient way to do this?

Use Windows Grep. It is shareware, but there is a free trial.

Says here that Notepad++ is applicable for search&replace for (in this example) 8342 HTML files http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-find-and-replace-words-in-multiple-files/ Notepad++ is a free source code editor
