I am using the replaceAll function.
Seems like when the string contains $, it will throw me an error.
Is that  a limitation? If yes, are there any other characters that cannot be in the string.

strTemp = strContent.replaceAll("#a#", "$10");

I got the answer.
Seems like backslashes (\) and dollar signs ($) cannot be in the string.

Please reply if there are more special characters.

strTemp = strContent.replaceAll( "\\#a\\#", "\\$10");

Should work...  You have to escape symbols...  And I think $ means "group" in the regex package which replace all uses...
