Hello :)

Because I don't want to tell my users to go to Edit menu then click Find (on This Page).

Thank you..

For Netscape, you can invoke the Edit-Find dialog by:

window.find([string[, caseSensitive, backward]])

where string is the string to find, caseSensitive and backward are booleans. All the arguments are optional, so you may just call window.find().

Look for a cross-browser Edit-Find script in dynamicdrive.com. There's one in there.

I don't think you can programmatically bring up the Edit-Find dialog in IE. You can modify the DD script to make it look like the real Find dialog.
