SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In Windows Internet Explorer 7 and in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, you try to find some text on a Web page. To do this, you press CTRL+F. Or, you use the IHTMLTxtRange::findText method to find the text programmatically. In this scenario, Internet Explorer may not find the text even though the Web page contains the text.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the maximum number of paragraphs that Internet Explorer can search is 32,000 paragraphs. Internet Explorer may not find the text if the text is located after the maximum number of paragraphs.
