Oh. On my machine (10.5.1 PPC, French locale) the search finds .sty  
files that are in my Library folder. The only difference with your  
method is that I ticked the box ``in the menu'' when the sheet with  
the different ``other'' choices appeared. What cmd-F does not seem to  
do is find things hidden in /Library, even if they are aliased in ~/ 
Library (but then, they are not indexed, are they?)...

Oh, again. On my machine there is no problem: clicking on a column  
title after the search completes sorts according to that column.
