Hi Andreas, Neither PrincipiaSearchSource nor SearchableText does anything for these File-type objects. I guess nothing for SearchableText is expected since these are not CMF or Plone-derived objects. The only way I've managed to get *anything* indexed for these File-type objects is by specifying the "data" attribute.
A couple of related postings that I've found through a bit of Googling have also noted having to use "data" when indexing these kinds of files, for example: http://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zope/2003-August/139702.html So, I should be able to use PrincipiaSearchSource? I've only used that for text-oriented objects like Page Templates. I'll keep digging around, but I welcome any suggestions for what the problem could be or how I can debug this further.
