Search Inside is a wonderful thing.

The only minor gripe I have with it is that the OCR software they used 
seems to have trouble with apostrophes; which wreaks havoc with the names 
of Dragon lineages. "e7rics" for example, instead of "e'Terics".

This made it more difficult to track down names for the Dramatis Personae 
page on the wikicity.

On the plus side, it does, at least, have text for almost all the Dragaera 
books (except for BP, unfortunately).
