It would be nice to have a search and replace capability when editing the wiki pages, or any other type of text where WikiFormatting can be used.

An example of javascript code for this can be found here (with a mix of english and french details, sorry): http://support.cassiopea.org/jsRegex/

This might be more easily done with the addition of jQuery (see r3947) to trunk, but this can also be easily done by copying the wiki text to an external editor and doing that work there (see also #590).

However, this also seems a bit complicated for Trac's approach of being a minimal project management tool… so suggesting a wontfix to this.

Agreed for the … & replace part: as soon as the editing starts to be complex, a real editor is needed anyway.

However, I often find myself in the need of quickly going to some part of the Wiki text, especially in big pages. Typical example is the TracFaq; it would be nice to have a way to search within the textarea, so that one can quickly go to the actual paragraph in the page that one wants to edit.

I'd recommend wontfix for the entire ticket; this should be a browser feature, not a Trac feature. Firefox and Safari can already do this, and IE and Opera won't be far behind (if they aren't there already).

+1 on wontfix as well with the current features of browsers.

Right, now IE7 supports searching within a textarea as well.
