Problem with search and HTML tags (2 posts)

    I just discovered a little problem with the search feature: I searched for "http", and it found all posts with links in them. It's obvious why this would happen, but I don't think it's desirable. I have several posts where I talk about HTTP, and that's what I was trying to find. So I would request that the search feature ignore text inside HTML tags.

    I would choose to make that a configurable option, because I used relative links to my own site and just realized that means when the post shows up in RSS aggregators the links aren't going to work. I came here trying to figure out how to search for a quote symbol.
    I want to search for this: href="/archives
    But no matter how I escape the quote, it doesn't seem to work. The HTML entity (%22) didn't work either.
