    Not only is it a known issue, Search works this way by design. See:
    Content Search Does Not Search All File Types for the Specified String
    [url]http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;309447[/url]

    There are registry tweaks to be found that allow you to add additional
    file types to be searched. Instead, I opted to use a different find
    tool, Agent Ransack ([url]www.agentransack.com[/url])
