Without looking at source too hard, I think the problem is
contains a variable within a variable. That is, %teach_spells%, which is the
argument to your contains-call; I'm not certain subfields (the data with
()'s of
a variable) get processed as variables. You MAY be able to correct this by
swapping the order of "if (text_processed...." and "else if
(!str_cmp(field, "global"....."
in find_replacement(). Then again, that might not work, I just don't have
the time
to test it out. Sorry.
