  • Easy/lazy way is just search for td.n The . matches any character to goes to next td<something>n. – steve Aug 8 '15 at 21:26

You must search for <td>n. The escaped version searches for a single isolated word td followed by n.

\<word\> pattern is useful for searching words even when they are separated by other stuff than whitespace or appear at the beginning or end of the line.

So try: /<td>name=
