Does anyone know if a filter or mechanism exists by which Site Server 3.0 can search over PDF documents (the PDF Docs have internal OCR'ed text)

Yes, Adobe makes a filter for this use. Its called, Adobe PDF IFilter 4.1, it will search through PDF content and index it. Here is the best news, its free. You will have to have Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 installed in order for it to work. Here is the link to the site:

Instructions are included. In addition you can learn about writing your own filters by looking at:
