Default Search & Replace [with backspace or delete?]

I want to eliminate a recurring short paragraph in some documents.

I know how to put the entire contents of the paragraph in the search
field, but how can I put a backspace character in the replace field so
that the blank line will be deleted?

Alternately, putting a [delete] character would work also, I think.

Any help?

Before you buy.

Yes there is in Microsoft Word. For example, if you wanted to replace two SPACEs with two BACKSPACES, then you would do the following in the Find and Replace window.

Find: Press the SPACE bar twice
Replace: ^r^r (These are the circumflex characters for BACKSPACE)

Works great.
