Get a better text editor. Notepad is fine.
TextPad is great.

Ah - silly me.
Check out Regular Expressions. They will help you identify what you want to find.
The JavaRanch Newsletter published a Regex tutorial.

Try UltraEdit 32 this is another good text editor.
PS. Why are you writing your own text editor??
