Searching for text

I'm searching for an effecient way to look at the loaded page and search for some text, specifically the text one can expect if the page returns a javascript error or finds no matching documents, which the developers have made global.  The trouble is I can not predict exactly where it'll be on the page.  I've tried using an if .... exists  statement, but then I get a bunch of errors as its trying to find the frame I typically see the text appearing in which isn't there if the page does load/present documents properly, if that makes sense.  My next thought was FindAllChildren, but then I'd find myself looking at an array, which I guess is possible, but seems cludgey somehow.  Any thoughts?

TIA - Dave

Got the findallchildren logic working, but still seems cludgey
