#7313 new defect

Trac documentation is using more and more macros to produce documentation about commands, parameters, etc.

However, the Search engine is unable to evaluate these macros, which ends up in poor search results, as in many case, the most relevant page for a command, parameter search is only generated by macros.

This is a true issue as long as Trac documentation relies on wiki pages.

Maybe the best way to address this issue would be to cache wiki-rendered pages, see #1216.

This would also be addressed by the design we talked about for the newhelp system, where does are rendered to HTML for display.

Searching within the output of macros will probably require some redesign of the search mechanism.
