Stuart and Theresa,

   You don't have to turn off the smart quotes to type a regular quote
symbol. All you have to do is type Esc+Shift+" and this will put in a
regular quote symbol. I'm not sure that it will work in the Search

type a double-quote somewhere, copy it, and paste it into the replace 
with box.

I think...   I'm not in FM right now and don't have time to test.
