Most of that can be done with global search and replace across files, using regular expressions. No need for any batch as the "global" bit handles that. UltraEdit and HomeSite have this capability, probably DreamWeaver, and no doubt other capable editors as well. Other thing like turning flags ('selected') into proper XHTML attributes ('selected="selected"') can be done like that as well. In fact, I have done that for a whole site (same order of magnitude) with HomeSite once, leaving very little to do manually provided the HTML is "clean" to begin with.
