Thanks for your reply!

I already figured out how to make a case sensitive replacement with
String::replace, which works exactly as I wanted. However case-insensitive
replacement with (?i) doesn't work at all. Is this implementation specific,
do I need to use other notation to indicate case insensitive matching?
