No thanks, Dave.  From our point of view, that would increase
transcription time.

A lot of text material we get simply shows the page number on its own,
or perhaps is shown as "Page ##".

In the first case, we can simply paste the [lea] code in front of the
number.

In the second case, we can do a Search for "Page ", (Page plus space)
and replace with [lea].  However, you do have to usually check each one,
as the word page can come up in text of course.

George.
