The 4.x version if TinyMCE released a year ago doesn't use the window.find
API anymore so it only affects older versions of TinyMCE. But it would be
nice if there where a built in API for searching in a document since doing
it manually by traversing DOM nodes takes a lot of code and the find
functionality exists in all browsers today so exposing that in a better way
than window.find would be nice.
