hi,

If you want to replace the string coming in web element like text field and replace with other string that will be possible.

But if you want to replace the hard code string on weppage which is inside the HTML then You can't. You'll get the all the information present on the page through "view source" command but you'll not able to changed that on browser.

use the following commands

storeAttribute ( attributeLocator, variableName )
Gets the value of an element attribute. Beware of http://jira.openqa.org/browse/SEL-280, which will lead some event handlers to get null event arguments. Read the bug for more details, including a workaround.

Arguments:

* attributeLocator - an element locator followed by an
* variableName - the name of a variable in which the result is to be stored.

Returns:
the value of the specified attribute


storeHtmlSource ( variableName )
Returns the entire HTML source between the opening and closing "html" tags.

Returns:
the entire HTML source


Hope this will help you. Best of luck

2) getText
( attributeLocator)
