Sure,

Do a Find/Replace in source code mode for </

Alternately, you could do a Find/Replace in Specific Tag mode to select entire <div> blocks depending on your needs.

obviously searching for </ will find every end tag but how do i find the end tag of a specific div

if i have:

<div>
<div id="start">
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
<div> this is a div which has several other divs inside it </div>
</div>
</div>

how would i find the end tag for <div id="start"> if i had a page that was full of divs. I know it is not that difficult to find but is there not an easy add on tool for this or is there not some other easy quik way of finding the a specific end tag

thanks in advance

Okay, you would need to use the second method I described (specific tag).  The setup would look like the screen grab below:

The above will find (do not click Replace) the entire tag block and you can see the end tag from there.
