It is hundreds of FM files.  We did decide to go with a plugin to find
and replace the paragraph tags.

Hi Mark,

You don't mention the amount of files involved.

If the files involved are not too many, just changing the format name
in the Pgf format catalog (or global change) should do the trick.
Another option is to MIF the files and search/replace the format name
in a text editor.

A FrameScript script can be used to speed this up, but then you would
have to have FrameScript installed.
