Lesson 18. Web Site and Document Searching > Searching for Text on a Web Page

Searching for Text on a Web Page

To search the contents of a Web page, first open the page you want to search, and then:

  1. Select Edit, Find (On This Page) or press Ctrl+F.

  2. The Find dialog box appears (see Figure 18.4). Type the text you want to find in the Find What box.

    Figure 18.4. Searching for text on a Web page.

  3. If you want exact matches only, check theMatch whole word only box. Selecting this option, IE5 would not return occurrences of your word when found within a larger word. For example, "Nesting" will not be found if the search word is "Nest."

  4. If you want IE5 to find and match the upper- and lowercase of your word, check the Match case box.

  5. Select Direction Up or Down to search toward the beginning or the end of the document.

  6. Click Find Next. IE5 will move to the first occurrence of the word in your document. The Find dialog box remains open. To see the next occurrence, click Find Next again. If no match was found for your search, a message box appears indicating that IE4 has finished searching the document.

  7. When you are finished searching, click Cancel to close the dialog box.
