A very common request I get for my applications is the ability to display search results the same way google does.  Not the search syntax, but displaying a paragraph or so of the text where the searched terms appear.  It seems i can used Google Desktop to add this capability to local databases and my entire file system.  If I have a Notes database on the Internet then Google seems to be able to index my NSF and make it available through Google Search.  But if I have a Notes database inside my firewall there does not seem to be a way that I can do this.  I have a lot of customers who would love the Notes client so much more if there was a way I could provide this capability....

Maybe a more customizable search results feature in general would be ideal. Search is more important than people think.

@Bruce.. Yes I agree. I support some apps where the database is exported to another application just so they can provide a Google-like search feature to the data. Its embarrassing to me I cant provide that feature in Notes.
