Original submission:

the "find file" dialog does seaching on unfiltered file contents. 
it tells the viewer to start viewing a the line of the match. 
however, if the file is filtered ("parsed", as opposed to "raw") 
before viewing (e.g., lynx -dump), the line number is applied to 
the filtered output - usually with "suboptimal" results.

i'm not sure what to do about this. translating the line numbers 
would require cooperation from the filter, which is sort of 
impossible for external filters. and grepping on filtered files 
would be sloooow. maybe like this: if matches are found and the 
file is "formattable", filter it and grep again and display that as 
the result. alternatively, force the viewer into raw mode, but i 
would not like this.
