Hi there,

It depends on what you want to do, and how you want to do it.

Once option is to use Microsoft Search Server which can crawl your pages and make them searchable.

If you're looking for a simpler solution, you could also use Google's client side search facilities. This allows you to implement search in no-time, leaving crawling, indexing and searching to Google. For this to work, you do need to have a public web site of course.

There are other alternatives as well. What exactly are you trying to accomplish? When you say "search the .aspx pages" do you mean their contents on disk, or their http output?
