1. I tried Schultz's solution but, if it works with
and Replace by
it does not work with
%end semantic\n%begin syntactic
and Replace by
%end semantic\n\n%begin syntactic
So, I used what worked and eyeballed the source to hit either "Next" or 
"Replace & Find". So, it's done, at least more ot less.

It looks as if it might have to do with anyone of,
the space between "end" and "semantic"
the indentations.

2. I tried Maxwell's solution (option return) but it didn't work even 
though option return does have an effect in the fields of the Find 
window. Possibly for the same reasons as above.

3. The first thing I had tried (all by myself) was Font's solution 
(copy-paste) and it didn't work but that might be because I had not 
turned on Regular Expressions (which scares me …). Or else perhaps 
because of any one(s) of the three things listed above.

Very grateful regards to all for such prompt responses.
