        I use google personally to find one when I want it as I find that the
        search function in yahoogroups is near worthless.
        Has anybody tried the google groups by the way?

        Otherwise you can get them here:
        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ntb-clips/ so long as you are member of
        the group which you must be because ... you posted to the list.

          Don, could you elaborate on how you search for posts using Google or
          Google Groups? What keywords do you use to home in on something
          specific. I just played around a bit and was only able to find matches
          on my local disk.

            You mean, in general, or tried setting up a notetab group there? I
            hang out in comp.lang.python. It is faster and easier to search and
            "better looking" IMO:

            http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python

            But I don't know if anyone has ever tried setting up a notetab group
            there. When you search google groups on NoteTab you get a lot of hits
            in alt.comp.freeware but there's no forum devoted to NoteTab. You'd
            have to lead a revolution, I'll bet.

                            What are you getting inserted into the notetab document? The search terms?
                            There was one really long line near the end, could that by any chance
                            have gotten wrapped in email?

                              Don, Jeff,

                              Using a modified version of this clip to Google with works pretty well.
                              I don't have a problem with the search page not being displayed or
                              focused. Don's suggestion of a mis-wrapped line could well be correct.

                              You could go to the second link below, copy and paste that clip and it
                              should work, it does for me, and you, at least, won't have to worry
                              about wrapped lines.
                              <>-------------------------<>


                              I've fashioned a small clip to prepare clips to be uploaded to
                              'htmlfixit.com'. I, also, have uploaded that clip and another to your site.

                              The addresses are below, check them out.

                              This is a link to FiXiT_UpLoadeR, it appears to have worked twice at
                              least. You add this clip to a clipbook, and/or the personal toolbar,
                              select the clip you want to upload to fixit and run the clip.

                              As I said, it's worked twice for me so far and displays correctly for
                              copying and pasting a working clip.

                              This clip is 'NoteTab Googler, a variation of your Googler clip, you may
                              want to check it also. And, should I post, at least, this second link
                              on the clips list so others may try it?

                              The third clip, so far, is one that will UUencode/UUdecode clips so they
                              will fit into the width parameters of email without getting wrapped.
                              The one clip does both processes, encoding and decoding. It's an extra
                              step or two but worth it to get a clip you can paste into a clipbook and
                              not have to worry about wrapped lines. This is the link.

                              These clips can be copied and pasted directly in to a clipbook. Just go
                              to the appropriate link, select the appropriate part of the text and
                              copy to clipboard. Then paste it into a clipbook and you should have a
                              working clip with no worry about wrapped lines.

                                Dang that is slick! It isn't obvious right off that it will auto search
                                for the highlighted terms at the time it is started. You only get the
                                dialog box if nothing is selected.

                                Ironically the version five thread over on the NTO list was a result of
                                my using MY google clip one day when I had the entire document selected
                                and it brought me to a competitors product that got me going on when if
                                ever we might see version five. On that misfire it somehow decided to
                                open about 15 tabs each with a different "RANDOM" site given that my
                                selection was also random. I was not sure why I got multiple windows,
                                but it was an interesting while.

                                Anyway, this google search is quite cool ...
