There is an optional license for the 5500 series for content filtering, but I don't know which add-on is doing that.

I beleive it is from Trend.
There is - the Content Security SSM. It does in fact use Trend Micro software to run but it requires per-seat per-year licensing and the SSM itself is something like £3000 on top of the purchase cost of the £3000 ASA. I'm not sure this is the solution you were after. You can do URL filtering using regular expressions:
Not sure if it works on page content though - I have yet to implement it anywhere.
