The easiest way to do this is probably to set the section content that you
want to search on as metadata. That is, do something like:

<Section>
<Description>
<Metadata name="Title">---SectionTitle---</Metadata>
<Metadata name="SearchMe">Here's the text that must be

searchable</Metadata>
</Description>

You'd then specify an index like section:SearchMe in your collect.cfg file.
This would index all the SearchMe metadata but nothing else.
