>the net. And b.t.w., how do I get Google to not ignore the '%' in a search
>for "%Fp"?

You're out of luck (presently). I also had this problem and asked them
about it. Here's their answer:

Thank you for your note. Google currently does not recognize search terms
containing exclamation points, question marks, the @ sign, and other such
characters. These characters are so common that including them in a search
would greatly slow down results delivery and hurt search performance.
Furthermore, the use of punctuation on the Web is so inconsistent (for
example, there's no obvious way to decide between Mr. and Mr) that
including it in the query often does more harm than good.

That said, we know that many useful search terms do contain such
characters. We've generated exceptions for terms like C++ and are studying
ways to enable search terms like F# and C/net. We'll keep your feedback in
mind as we work to improve the quality of our search.

Thanks for your interest in Google.
