I can see see why spotlight doesn't routinely index 'unknown' file types but it's a shame there isn't a way to force it to search in particular files . . . a 3rd party solution perhaps?

stellman - if you're running you're app in parallels why not use the search in windows? I know for sure that you can search the contents of any file for specified text strings. I'm not saying it'll be fast but it will do it.
