I believe there is some kind of add-in for IE and maybe Netscape
and/or others which puts a little search field in your browser
toolbar and lets you search any given page in the same way, including
highlighting the search terms exactly as in the cached version.

I it's not trivial to find this beast, I can ask the guy at work
