A bit of an odd question, but if I wanted to search for the symbol ":" in Google, how would I go about doing that (and would it even be possible)?

I found this article (blogspot.com), but that's not what I'm looking for ... A search for [:] just gives you the word "colon", but what if I want to find instances of the ":" symbol itself?

Interesting that they didn't wait until the Mac and Linux versions were ready. I'm not going to put it on my work laptop, so I'll have to wait to try it.
