Search and replace text within a file using C#

Hi All,

I have a file on the server called:


... I have appended the code for this page.

On the fly using C#, I would like to be able to replace the code ' Text="" ' within the 1 literal control with Text="1".

Please could anyone show me how to achieve this?

Many thanks,

<%@ Page Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/content.master" %>
<script runat="server">
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="PageID" Runat="Server">
<asp:Literal ID="litPageID" runat="server" Text=""></asp:Literal>

If it helps, there will not be any other Text="" attributes contained within this file.
How about:
string newContent = File.ReadAllText().Replace("Text=\"\"", "Text=\"1\"");
