That could explain it.
I was using searching to help me develop my regex for use in syntax  

I would also like to use ZWPL in regular searched & macros.
Once you have oniguruma for searching setup i'll be able to finish the
shortcut for 'select-contents-of-next-attribute' that I've been  
working on.

Then I'll just have to figure out how to make a command for 'select- 
contents-of-previous-attribute' but I have no clue how to search  
backwards easily.
