I need a BULK Find and Replace AJAX/Java/Jquery/Flash App

First, before you bid PLEASE READ! I need a VERY SIMPLE software created that is a bulk find and replace tool. The tools job will be to find symbols such as: ' ~ ` % ^ & * ( ) [ ] \ / . - and to replace the symbols with NOTHING. When the tool replaces a symbol it must not leave any white space behind, it must just remove the symbol and the white space where the symbol was. Here is what I need:

This software will not be used by the public at all, I need this for personal use only. You can make this as barebones as possible if you would like to. It can be on a plain white background.

- First I need an input box where I will be pasting in approximately 2000 lines of data

- Below the input box there needs to be another input box where I can enter what symbols I would like to remove by entering the symbols into the input field. To separate the symbols we could use a comma (however we will be removing commas as one of the symbols as well.). For example the input box would contain: $, %, ^, &, - Note the separations between each symbol is a comma and white space.

- Below or next to the find input box, I need the replace input box which will allow the replacing of the above symbols with a single variable in the replace field. The input box will allow me to enter what I want to replace every instance of the find symbols in one shot. For example when these symbols are entered: $, %, ^, &, - The replace field will contain NOTHING and then all instances of each symbol will be stripped (including removing the white space) and added to the output data field.

- Below this I need 2 buttons. 1 button will say: Convert and the other will say: Clear. The convert button will obviously convert the above text to find and replace all symbols to nothing and remove all white space and place this data within the output field. The clear button will clear all data from the very top input field ONLY. The clear must not remove any data from the find and replace fields, since the find and replace fields will only need to be entered once.

- I need a checkbox that removes all white space from the entire document and upon pressing the convert button, the document will remove all instances of ALL white space.

- Below this I need the output field here. This is where the data will show up after pressing the convert button.

- Lastly I need 2 more buttons: One button will say: Select and Copy. And the other button will say Clear. The select and copy button will allow a single click select all and copied to the clipboard instantly in ONE click. The Clear button will just clear the form.

Do not be concerned about all this writing, this is just to make sure you completely understand how I want things done. I couldn't see this project taking more than 30 minutes - 1 hour for an experienced programmer.

I am willing to pay $50 for this. If you want to be accepted bid $50 ONLY. If you have any questions please let me know.

If you want to write the entire software now, just start writing the software and send it over to me. The first person that sends me the complete software or a sample of this software, I will award the project to.

Im in the USA the date is 10/19/2011 and its 7:27 Eastern standard time. Thank you!
