was searching text files (extension LSP) for content that I know exists
and can find with Windows98, but Windows XP was unable to search the text
files for the content I specified. This is a tool that I depend on. Why am
I unable to find specified content of text files? Windows XP Pro.

Content Search Does Not Search All File Types for the Specified String

Using the "A word or phrase in the file" search criterion may not work

In addition to Wesley's advice:

Follow this note and create a PersistentHandler for that filetype. Use {5e941d80-bf96-11cd-b579-08002b30bfeb}, if and only if it is a plain-text file. For other HTML based files, the search filter will vary.
