Depends on what you mean by "work".    I just got bitten.    I tried
to find the "Quotes and quotelike operators" section in perlop by
using "/Quote" in more.    But because that's actually "_\bQ_\bu ... "
(or whatever  -  it's difficult to see on the screen) you can't find
it.

Emphasis techniques should not destroy searching.    I hate having to go
back to the raw pod in cases like that.
