searching personal documents?

The search feature sounds terrific which is something lacking in the Sony Reader.
Does the search function work with personal documents like converted txt? that is if you select a line, does the built in dictionary work?

thanks,
tony

I know, but a) I only have a 4GB CF card, and I have other things to store locally and b) I think of Wikipedia as "dynamic" rather than "static" content, i.e. I'd prefer to have the most recent version of an article, and access to its history. So while the portable version is a good idea and if I were going to be away from wireless connectivity for a while I might rearrange my system to be able to pull and store a copy of Wikipedia, for the most part I'd prefer a live connection.
