Have you read the Using Ask Alexander
posts in the forum? There are 3 articles on searching (with pictures!) and another article on the limits of OCR.

Genii issues through 2009 are now available too! 2010 issues are only available in print.
One of the biggest hassles of using iGenii archives right now is that the documents are only broken into volumes, not individual issues. This makes navigating to pages difficult and time consuming.
