Firefox 3.5.3 (doubt this matters, but never hurts to include it) with 
Javascript enabled
1. Navigate to page, click on Show Details radio button (so it is now 
selected) - sections expand, fine.
2. Click on All Standards and Drafts header (exact position doesn't appear 
to matter much, point is to be high enough on the page to search the 
content).
3. Type the string "sml" (leave off the quotes I used as delimiters here). 
 In Firefox, this searches the text of the page.
As soon as you type the "s", the "show details" radio button is toggled 
(details collapse, although that radio button remains selected).  Since 
SML appears in none of the headers, the search fails.  (It might fail 
anyway because of how the Details content is built, but that's a separate 
issue.)
The same behavior results of FF search is invoked via CTL-F + "sml" 
instead.
This is going to make it all that much harder for folks to find content 
even when they know the right TLAs.

Best Regards, John
