Well, usually I wouldn't mention it but since it comes pre installed last I looked, you might always try Perl instead of having to install the GNU Stream EDitor.


Code:
Terry@dixie$ echo 'gratefull' | perl -pe 's/gratefull/grate\x2dfull/'      4:54
grate-full
Terry@dixie$                                                               4:55
Which I assume is what your trying to do but upon document.txt instead of stdin with sed.
