Maybe, but to be honest, I don't have plans for it yet. Basically there
would be three ways of implementing such a feature: 

  1) By searching the database with regular expressions which searches
      within the XML content
  2) By searching the database with certain DB-specific XML functions -  
      but only few databases support this
  3) Build an index table (= redundant data) which is used for searching

None of the solutions seam is very appealing to me ...

I would. Originally I planned to deliver TemplaVoila with some premade FCEs
which reflext the traditional elements like Text w/image etc. But I had to
postpone that due to lack of time. Anyway, that would be a cool feature
someone else than me could prepare!

Yes, I would love to.

Where exactly? Could you post a link to a screenshot?
