Editing Text in textField

Without getting too complicated, imagine just a simple Static textField you created in flash and you filled it in with a paragraph of text.

simpleText.text = "here is my paragraph and this is fun and the dog ran far but it did not eat the paper with the paragraph and run-on sentences are nice!

What if I did not want the word “paragraph” to show up within the textField? What is the easiest way to search for the word “paragraph” and to simply remove it? Would it be to change it to a String, and then search the string, and then remove it, and then convert it back to a textField? Any help is greatly appreciated! :bu:

Thanks! :hr:
