I am supporting apps which I did not write. Some of them use the native QuickBase Exact forms feature and have a line of code like this near the top of the code page.

(some code before this .....    www.quickbase.com/css/styleEF.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
Do I substitute team.quickbase.com for the www.quickbase.com to keep this alive after www.quickbase./com is dead?

Oh, so you just use your normal Realm name.  OK, I get it now.

That solves the URL addressing issue. But if you look at the CSS there are some unusual tags (eg v\:vmlframe - with escaping) in the CSS that are drawn from something called Vector Markup Langauge:

VRM is a Microsoft incarnation which became obsolete in 2012 and dropped in IE10 and some version of Office after Office 2007:

Who know if it still works.

QuickBase support confirmed that it's just a Realm change to mycompany.quickbase.com that is required to fix those Exact Forms scripts

btw, using Search and Replace works well (ie launched off App Management)  I had a client with lots of exact forms and I just zapped them all at once.
