Default Program that can search text

Ok guys, first thing first I'm gonna tell you my background.

Basically I'm doing some linguistics research, and I need to compile a list of words quickly, as it takes me forever to sort out words on my own.

So what i want to do is take a web page, and take all the text off of it.

Then take a list of words I already have.

And use the list of words to search the web page, and have a program tell me which words are in the web page but not in my list.

Does this make sense to whomever is reading this?

If nobody knows how to do this, that is fine, I would just like a tad bit of help on this.

Thanks everyone.

If you are using Internet Explorer 7 you can go to the magnifying glass in the upper right click the little arrow and then click on Find on this page

No, I am looking for something that has automation.

I have a list of words that I want to check for, and find ones that i dont have, so manually doing them in IE wouldnt help because I dont know the words that I am looking for.

Would this be done using a batch file or something?
