I'm trying to find snippets of code in a bunch of velocity files using Spotlight (specifically pages that contain a <html> tag. Spotlight's missing pages that contain that tag that I know are there. Is there a way to escape characters in Spotlight? What are some good alternative search engines for Macs?

I saw this article - http://www.macworld.com/article/132788/2008/04/spotlight2.html - but it doesn't say anything about special characters, like periods or tags.
