Spotlight vs. Microsoft Word

I have been doing some tests to try to learn why Spotlight sometimes fails to find words in the contents of Microsoft Word .docx files. I’ve published some results from running a particular sequence of steps that on several Macs has exhibited the bad search results here:

Perhaps more importantly, I am hoping to convince people to vote on this issue on a Microsoft web site, in hopes that someone there will take a deeper look into the issue and fix it:

Just click on the Vote button there. It only asked me for an email address in order to have my vote counted, and in the last week I do not believe I have gotten any new spam because of it (nor any email at all because of voting, that I can tell).
