spotlight definitely *does* now index the contents of my mathematica
files.

however, spotlight definitely *does not* cope with punctuation in my
mathematica files.

for example, if create a test notebook called test.nb and type in the
following:

  MagicFooText

  Needs["Combinatorica`"]

then spotlight finds

  MagicFooText

and also finds

  Combinatorica

but definitely *does not* find

  Needs["Combinatorica`"]

and, in fact, as you type into spotlight, all found documents drop to
zero the minute you type in the double quote.

note, however, that punctuation sequences like /@ seem to cause
spotlight no trouble; so, hence my original question: are there
spotlight escape sequences that will allow searches like
Needs["Combinatorica`"]?
