    Search routine includes html markup? Link to this post

    The default search behaviour seems to perform a match of the search against say the "Content" field;
    but the content field would contain html markup as well.

    Thus this results in unexpected results when you search for terms such as "href" or "strong" where results are returned even when their meaningful content does not actually contain those terms.

    Is there a way to avoid this?

    I am thinking of creating a redundant "SearchContent" field in SiteTree and using onAfterWrite to duplicate the content into this field with tags stripped, and perform search on this field instead; is there another way? (Creating extra fields for each searchable dataobject will be a pita).
