The previewer from ArborText does searches on strings of ordinary
characters in a dvi file (unfortunately, no accented characters
or math is accepted). Thus you can preview dvi files AND search them.
The previewer can be bought separately (about $375 educational price).
It is also available as one of the pieces of Publisher if you happen
to already own it.
