I should find out more about how the formatters work! My first thought 
would be to look at creating a new formatter that strips out syntax but 
I am not sure how big a job that will be.

I don't mind seeing a sub-optimal solution, particularly if it is likely 
to be quick enough and quick to create. I think that the double 
conversion would be giving us the correct results - the rendered html 
must be considered what the user will want to be able to search, right?
