+  <title>Search for text</title>
+  <p>You can search for text in <app>Terminal</app> output. Go to <guiseq><gui style="menu">Search</gui><gui 
style="menuitem">Find</gui></guiseq>. In <gui style="textbox">Search for:</gui>, type in the search keyword 
and press <gui style="button">Find</gui>. To return, press <gui style="button">Close</gui>.</p>
+  <p>You can search using the following options to narrow your results accordingly.</p>
+  <terms>
+    <item>
+      <title><gui style="checkbox">Match case</gui></title>
+      <p>Select this option to restrict results to only those that match the case of your given keyword, 
that is, your search is set to be case sensitive.</p>
+    </item>
+    <item>
+      <title><gui style="checkbox">Match entire word only</gui></title>
+      <p><app>Terminal</app> will look for the entire search keyword and will ignore results that partially 
match your given search. For example, you may have searched for "rhythmbox", <app>Terminal</app> will show 
only results that match this keyword exactly and omit results such as "rhythmbox-client".</p>
+    </item>
+    <item>
+      <title><gui style="checkbox">Match as regular expression</gui></title>
+      <p><!--TODO: write the behvaiour --></p>
+    </item>
+    <item>
+      <title><gui style="checkbox">Search backwards</gui></title>
+      <p>If selected, this option searches for the keyword from the latest <app>Terminal</app> output and 
upwards. This option is advised when you are looking for the keyword that could have occured recently.</p>
+    </item>
+    <item><gui style="checkbox">Wrap around</gui></item>
+    <p><!-- What is this?! --></p>
+  </terms>
+  <note style="tip"><p>If you expect to work with a lot of <app>Terminal</app> output, you should set 
<gui>scrollback lines</gui> to unlimited to allow <app>Terminal</app> to search more efficiently.</p></note>
