I get around this one by searching for something like two carriage returns
followed by page, that is in dos and linux programs. I have never figured
out how to do this under windows, as a <cr> is never allowed as part of a
search string. I'm not even sure if the mechanism to type using the alt-key
from the numeric key-pad is available, and whether you'd have to type U0010
U0013 for the <eol>
