New Module: Search by Page for Drupal

I've just released the first version of my Search by Page module for Drupal. You can download it at http://drupal.org/project/search_by_page.

This module enhances the core search functionality of Drupal by indexing content as rendered by your theme, and giving you more control over which pages on your site are indexed. You might also be interested in my article on options for search in Drupal, which I wrote recently.
