That was it, it works now, thanks. Funny, I didn't notice that, I had it in my code before, but somewhere along the line of messing with things, it just switched back over to .toString() and I hadn't noticed. Thanks everyone!
One more question if I may - how can I exclude certain things like blank spaces? I mean, I could check the textfield, but it would seem there is an easier way. If I put a blank space (or nothing for that matter) in the input text field and search for that, it returns all nodes. I could check the input text field, but I'd rather do it with a regular expression (both for elegance and to learn). The help docs are skimpy, so excuse so many questions here. It's also such a huge subject, it's very hard to Google exactly what you need.
