Regular expressions in NeoOffice Calc

I have a CSV file, exported from mySQL, which I'm trying to update. What I want to achieve is to replace the <div> tags with <p> tags.

I can find this search term in the document:
<div class="className">.*</div>

but this one does not work:
<div class=\"className\">[A-z]+</div>

I'm not sure what to replace this with, because I want the content between the div tags to stay in place.

<p class="className">Content to stay in place</p>

I have also tried searching across multiple lines with this expression (white space, new line, white space):

</div>\s*\n*\s*<div class="className2">, but have not found any matches.

Also, could you please explain the use of \1 and $1?

I'm very much a newbie at this, so would appreciate any advice. I've had a look at some of the Regex posts on the Perl forum, but that's not down my alley.
