Anyone know of a current search engine that also looks at the information contained in commented portions of the page?

i dont know of one, but i'm sure you could make one :)

Nope. Never seen one.

Just wondering... Why do you need to search commented portions of pages?

I'm writing a server with a slightly modifed version for research and experiments - it's so I can track the pages it processes.

edit: And incidentally DavidP, I'm currently looking at that option... seriously... that's I why I was looking for the paper by Google's creators last night.

since i know you will probably be going to byu, and you asked me about a webcrawler on AIM: ask anyone in CS 240 at BYU. You make your own webcrawler in that class.
