Spin off from #27136.

On the installed theme page, when you search, it will search HTML as well (e.g., if a <strong> tag is there, it'll find it).

We fixed this for plugins in 27136 and need to fix it for themes now.

I can still reproduce in current trunk, with the same steps as in comment:5:ticket:27136:

  1. Add <strong>test</strong> somewhere in a theme description.
  2. Search for "strong".

On a related note, there should be a message instead of a blank screen if no themes are found: #28587.

I did some performance tests on the patch and I don't share nacin's performance concerns. I also tested it with 399 themes on, and I could not make out any delays caused by the change.
