If you want case sencetive search, you can just use the contains() function in an XPath expression like this:

//QA[contains(.,$keyword)]

where $keyword is of course the word to search for.The way with which you initiate this search would depend of your environment. In PHP for example, see the DOM functions.If you want case incencetive search, the deal is almost the same, but you'll have to translate() both of the arguments into one case.

You know what I was thinking about with a search...you recently told me that it's not possible to "highlight" text when you do an XML search. But I think I believe otherwise.I haven't tested it but I'm pretty sure it will work...Using tokenize function... tokenize("$keyword", "\s+")and so on...Does that make sense?
