No, AES is right in some cases for the Documentation Center pages.
Some Documentation Center pages are peculiar in some ways in terms of
using Mathematica's search capabilities.

For example.  Go to the main Documentation Center page.  Once there,
click on the page to be sure that you are in it.  Now bring up the
find and replace dialog and, for example, type in "Overview" (without
the quotes) in the Find field and click on the Next button.  Nothing
happens (and a warning beep is generated) even though the word
Overview does appear on the page.

This sort of thing does not happen for all pages by any means, but
there are some peculiarities to be found.  Perhaps it has something to
do with the style sheets that is used, or perhaps it is a gremlin...
