View some album art in Spotlight search results System 10.4
I was searching for something using Spotlight and noticed that a music file that I had purchased from iTMS appeared, I couldn't understand why so I clicked the info icon to see all the details, and to my surprise, the Album art was displayed above the preview. I tested some more, and this is not the case when you do Get Info in the Finder, nor does it work for MP3s with album art.

Not really a hint, but thought I'd share.

[robg adds: Definitely not a hint as such, but it's interesting to see album art showing up in Spotlight's search results. It's also somewhat odd that it seems only the store-bought M4Ps get this treatment.]

This also works on my .m4a files which have imported graphics. So, it is not limited to just iTunes-purchased songs. No .mp3 files to check...

It also doesn't display art for Audible files.
