[IDE] Code-only searching in the documentation

Add a check-box next to the documentation search box that would search only the code snippets in the documentation, and not the main text. Searches for 'in' would become useful, as well as many other English phrases that are also I7 code.

        I want the opposite: being able to search just the documentation rather than any examples. E.g. if you search for "carry out", section 12.2 doesn't show up until the fourth page of results. Perhaps what I really want is for the results to be sorted in the order than they appear in the documentation, so I could find the first instance of a term.

        This is certainly worth investigating, though we'll need to find a way to do this which works on all platforms.
