CFSearch and context sensitive results

I am using cfsearch to search pdf and Word documents.  I see that cfsearch returns information about the context with the search words highlighted using contextHighlightBegin and contextHighlightEnd.  Is there a way to highlight these words automatically when the user opens the pdf or Word docoument.

Thanks for the help

no, because that would mean that CF would modify your Documents, which is not possible.

Do you know of other tools that could help me with this?  I know of DT search but I can't use it on my shared host (and it is expensive).

Thanks

Are you familiar with CFDocument?

consult your cfdocs and I looked around a bit and found this link:

Thanks

I just found the following that will solve my problem for PDF files:

When I open a pdf file I can pass the parameter search=wordList and then my search words will automatically be highlighted.

Now I just need to find something similar for Word documents
