Follow up to my question here, I'm looking for word processing software or other text-based tool that can "find" text with complex (ie. formats not applied to the entire string) formatting, preferably from the clipboard.

For example, I would like to be able to copy some text to the clipboard like this:

MS Word, for example, in its advanced find function, can only find strings with formatting applied to the entire string.
