in thread substitution in textual area of HTML file

This doesn't seem to be the case:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; use Mojo::DOM; my $html = '<ul><div class="txt" style="position:absolute; left:84px; +top:73px;"><span id="f1" style="font-size:11px;vertical-align:baselin +e;color:rgba(0,0,0,1);">technology of S2S translation, <b>also</b> kn +own as <b>Spoken</b> Language Translation (SLT),</span></div><div cla +ss="txt" style="position:absolute; left:44px; top:73px;"><span id="f1 +" style="font-size:11px;vertical-align:baseline;color:rgba(0,0,0,1);" +>is a new application of AI,</span></div><li>there</li><li>everyone</ +li></ul> '; my $dom = Mojo::DOM->new( $html ); $dom->find('span')->each( sub { $_->content( $_->content =~ s/Spoken/D +erp/r ) } ); say $dom->content;


<ul><div class="txt" style="position:absolute; left:84px; top:73px;">< +span id="f1" style="font-size:11px;vertical-align:baseline;color:rgba +(0,0,0,1);">technology of S2S translation, <b>also</b> known as <b>De +rp</b> Language Translation (SLT),</span></div><div class="txt" style +="position:absolute; left:44px; top:73px;"><span id="f1" style="font- +size:11px;vertical-align:baseline;color:rgba(0,0,0,1);">is a new appl +ication of AI,</span></div><li>there</li><li>everyone</li></ul>

The <b></b> tags around 'also' are still there, and replacing 'Spoken' with 'Derp' also maintains the associated <b></b> tags. Perhaps you've altered some code?
