From the MySQL manual -- [url=http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/string-functions.html]string functions[/url]:


Returns the string str with all occurrences of the string from_str
replaced by the string to_str. REPLACE() performs a case-sensitive
match when searching for from_str.

mysql> SELECT REPLACE('www.mysql.com', 'w', 'Ww');
        -> 'WwWwWw.mysql.com'

This function is multi-byte safe.[/code]
