    you won't be able to do it direct from cpanel
    but if you are good a scripting than you can write bash/awk script that would do the search and replace

    a simpler way would be to download the files to your PC and use MS frontpage or ultraedit or notepad++ or any other advanced editor to do the search and replace in multiple files
    let me know if it is not clear enough
