Curious from those in the know .... can the below be modified to the same thing but without REGEX    :) but still with Jquery
div contains text like this
The basic idea is I just wanna find a specific string and change that strings color and not the rest

var search = 'bar';
$(document).ready(function () {
    $("div:contains('"+search+"')").each(function () {
        var regex = new RegExp(search,'gi');
        $(this).html($(this).text().replace(regex, "<span class='red'>"+search+"</span>"));
    });
});
