A search returns a list of "documents that contain any fragment of that document that is longer than a certain length. That length is about one line of text." You can access the web pages of the documents returned by the search or display them side by side with the search text. You can also enter the URL of a document and the search will return a few sentences from that page. It is suggested that the site could be used to check to be certain that you have the latest version of a document.
