This is a simple regex that can be used to search an HTML file and replace all unquoted attributes with their quoted version.

map <F9> :%s/\([^&^?]\)\(\<[[:alnum:]-]\{-}\)=\([[:alnum:]-#%]\+\)/\1\2="\3"/g<CR>


I use this regex and abbreviate it to "reg1".

cabbrev reg1 %s/=\([^"][^> ]\{0,40\}\)/="\1"/gc
