These are interesting ideas, and IMHO there may be a case for something like
them. The things I wouldn't want to see implemented are the line numbers,
unless it meant the nth line of the source (the nth line of the output changes
every time I change my browser window size) and regexps (much as I use Unix
myself, regexps seem designed to hinder rather than aid searching: let's
stick to plain search strings). Another point about searching is that the
same URL could then come out differently on different browsers if an
<img alt> is used in HTML.
