Hello fox_statton,

it works for me

$html = "<form id=\"form1\" name=\"form1\" method=\"post\" action=\"\">";
$html = preg_replace('/form/si', 'f1', $html);
print $html;

here is the output

<f1 id="f11" name="f11" method="post" action="">

Regards,

ivostoykov

If you dont want to replace the form-tag itself, only the id and name try using
$html = "<form id=\"form1\" name=\"form1\" method=\"post\" action=\"\">";
$html = preg_replace('/form(\d+)/si', 'f\1', $html);
