    What exactly are you trying to find? You could use the HTML code I suppose for an asterisk: ∗

    See if that works.

    thanx.
    yet, seems to work for some sites only. (initialy, i wanted to google something on "**" parameter prefix in python - you get nothing using HTML code...)

    thanx, yet if i'm not mistaken, it searches in pieces of code only, not in texts on coding, which i was interested in in the abovementioned case...
