Feature Proposal: Improve the readability of search results


This would make it much easier to evaluate search results and find the right wiki topic you were searching for

Description and Documentation

1. in the list of search results, show the text of the first occurance of a header line (h1...h6) instead of the topic name (ThisIsMyTopic). Example for this topic: Show as the header of a search result "Feature Proposal: Improve the readability of search results" and not "ImproveSearchResultsList" (or show the!ImproveSearchResultsList in brackets at the end of the topic "human readable" headline).

2. highlight the first occurance (bold or bg color) of the search term in the search result summary as done by Google or other web search engines


See above.
