We're starting to use document indexing and search tools within our 
company to find technical documents (think Google on an intranet). The 
problem is that none of the indexing applications we've found recognize 
the Mathematica *.nb files, even though they're mostly just text. Does 
anyone have suggestions for ways to automatically catalog/index large 
numbers of notebooks so that they can be searched.

One messy approach we thought of was to always create a companion HTML 
version of the notebook and search on the html.
