Well, I didn't post the statement about Frame's limited search function,
but I will point out that you can't use Frame to search across multiple
documents (in a book, for example). That's a limitation I've regretted
on more than one occasion. (I haven't used Frame 5 yet, so this problem
might have been fixed; does anyone know if it has?)
