SQL Server 2005 Full Text Search

We had a requirement where the user had to do a search on Overview/description field which had nvarchar (max) data type. Full text search can be used for searching against the LOB data types like nvarchar (max), text and BLOB data types like varbinary (max) and image data type. Please note that in image and text data type will be deprecated in the future and hence avoid using them.
