Change a link text to regular text

I have a client that has many pages that were designed to linked to documents. They have since changed their minds and will not be linking docs to them. Is there a way to change these so as not to create a dead link (just erasing the link) but not have to go in and create new text? There are a lot would be nice if I didn't have to change them one by one.

Here is an example of the page

Thanks folks!

Hi Byron
I don't think that is possible at the moment, you could always do a #no-link" but then that would be almost as much work as replacing the text-links with normal-text, and not as tidy for the markup.
Looks like you will have to do the hard yards & replace them all

And before deleting them all and changing them you might want to first make a backup in case they change their mind or add the new text and just change the link text to display-none so you can add them back in later if they change their mind. Just an option.

thanks Jeff - I did as I expect them to one day change their mind!
