I've attached what I tried to post before in a text file.
Additionally, I see you're scraping websites. I could help you with this if needed in future and automate manipulations like yours automatically in PHP (using regular expressions). It can also automatically replace special UTF-8 characters you've posted in your original text file (which gets garbled into things like ’ without the proper encoding - generally due to curly quotes, long hyphens and ellipses). You can e-mail me at soundsfake [at] hotmail [dot] com if you're interested.
Sorry Airtasker doesn't let me post text that looks like code :)
"<([0-9]{1,}.)" with "Tip:"; then "^13" with " " (space); then " Tip:" with "~13Tip:".
