Search oddness: NN

    I was searching for instances of the characters NN in one of my
    notebooks and discovered that this matched all *numbers* in the
    notebook. This isn't mentioned in OneNote's help page on searching. Is
    it documented somewhere? Are there similar quirks? (I know that to find
    the actual characters NN I can just stick double quotes around them.)

    Yeah, that's one of those interesting wildcards that search will use to
    match stuff. For more of those...
