I have concatenated the Mathematica 5.0.1 Book chapters together into
one long notebook, because, using Ctl+F finds, I can locate arbitrary
strings the Help Browser does not catalog. Frequently, I receive this
same error message and the Find process halts ...
Front End Message (Date & Time)
The string '"' cannot be displayed with ShowStringCharacters->False
due to an error in the string.
My best guess is the problem is a string with a missing "-mark, as I
recall one or two of these in the Mathematica Book. However, I can't
guess why this is confusing the Find algorithm. Maybe I need to
locate uncompleted strings, but I don't see how to do this from the
Find dialog box, and I don't see Regular Expressions discussed in the
Mathematica Book beyond the wildcard level.
I get more of these Find failures than I like. Does anyone have an
idea how to keep Find from giving up so frequently?
