how to replace selected text using keyboard shortcut

Pengembara T.
Dear all,

Sorry if this question is already asked before, but googling does not give enough result, maybe wrong search key.

what i want to do is:
- select text using mouse/trackpad (i'm in wondows).
- press some control-key to replace that text.

example, i have following line in file:
===
one
two
three
===

result:
===
<h1>one</h1>
<h2>two</h2>
three
===

usually what i am doing is:
:%s'one'<h1>one</h1>'
:%s'two'<h2>two</h2>'

can i change with:
1. select 'one' with mouse
2. Press <Ctrl-B> (or some other combination) to convert it to <h1>one</h1>.
So Ctrl-B is associated with <h1> and </h1> tag.
3. select 'two' with mouse
4. press Ctrl-2 (or other combination) to convert to '<h2>two</h2>'.
Ctrl-2 is associated with <h2> and </h2> tag.

thanks.

You can get a powerful solution with a plugin such as surround.vim.

If you really want to do it just for this, you could do something like the following (untested code):

vnoremap <c-b> <esc> `>a</h1><esc>`<i<h1><esc>

I'm on my mobile phone, so can't confirm that this will work at the end of the line, but I think it will.
