A caution on Spotlight searches and ampersands
Authored by: osxpounder on Sep 25, '08 04:15:52PM

Sadly, no. Same results (lack of results). Originally I used the search field in the Finder toolbar rather than Cmd-F, but I hadn't tried the default Spotlight (Cmd-Space) search until I was testing before I submitted the hint.

Oddly, though, I just tried Cmd-Space to search for "—" right now, and it turned up just one hit (there should be at least 3), and it was in an email I sent *about this hint on this site*. So, Spotlight finds that text string if it's in a Mail message. Odd.
