Hello All,

I would like to replace a particular occurrence of a substring in a string with another substring.

for eg : Given string is : people <tag> help </tag> always

expected string is people <font> help </font> always.

I need to replace the occurrence of <tag> </tag> with <font></font>

help would be appreciated.

Thanks

String htmlTags = "people <tag> help </tag>";
htmlTags = htmlTags.replaceAll("tag","font");
