I used: Edit|Find in Page| July
and it found the one instance of July in the page. However, I also do
not get a "The text you entered was not found" if it cannot find any
other occurance, or if I search for something that is not on the page
(search 'Wally'). Both on SM 1.1.18 & 2.0b2pre.
A few possibilities:
["Find in this page" should indicate that search has begun]
['find'-alert could show search string]
Too many there for me to go through. Perhaps you can 'find' the right
one in that batch of 200. (no pun intended).
