XP's search for string in files won't search between <% %>

P: n/a
tmb
I'm trying to use the Microsoft Search to search for a text string in a
folder full of a bunch of ASP files.

Seems like the normal "Search for text in files" program in XP Pro won't
search between the ASP delimiters <% %>

How can I search for text strings in ASP a folder full of ASP files with out
opening each one individually and searching?

thanks for any help.

Known problem. I use Visual Studio's find in files, *much* more efficient
and much more trustworthy.
