CString data = "Hello Bob.  How are you?";
//First method
strncpy(data.LockBuffer()+6,"Tom",3);
data.UnlockBuffer();
//Second method
data.Replace("Tom", "Kay");
//Third method
strncpy(data.GetBuffer(10)+6,"Joe",3);

The above are a few method.  Not sure what exactly you need.  Please provide additional information.

Example:
CString LeftKey = "<style>";
CString RightKey = "</style>";
CString szdata = "<style>want everything that is between</style><style>Want here again</style>";
CString szReplace = "Hello World";
int Start = 0;
while(szdata.Find(LeftKey,Start) > -1)
{
     Start = szdata.Find(LeftKey,Start);
     int End = szdata.Find(RightKey,Start);
     CString LeftSide = szdata.Left(Start+LeftKey.GetLength());
     CString RightKey = szdata.Mid(End);
     szdata = LeftSide + szReplace + RightKey;
     Start += LeftKey.GetLength();
}
