When using Safari's Find command-F function, it seems to easily find a string on the page as long as the character immediately following the string is not an html open bracket.

To see an example of this error, visit:

One of the words is derezzed. Search for "der" and Safari finds an instance. Search for "zed" and it does not. A quick look at the code find that the next character is an open bracket to close the html a tag </a... I couldn't get any searches to work for letter combos that were on the page but followed in the code by a closing tag.

Using a MacBook Pro with Lion and Safari version 5.1.5 (7534.55.3).

Maybe I am an idiot, but this seems like a huge bug. This cost me about two hours of time today looking for strings that were on pages yet reported as not found. Firefox finds the strings in question without a problem.
