Docs - improve search function

Hey guys,

love the Framework, but the website structure is a bit confusing. I'm working with Foundation since ~10 months and I think the usability of the page can be improved.

1. Search function: Not that good. If I search for "Flex Align", no results. "vertical-align", no results. And so on. As every of you can guess, I was searching "Flexbox's vertical alignment". I don't need the mixins or anything else, I just need a short way to this spot: http://foundation.zurb.com/sites/docs/flex-grid.html#vertical-alignment

2. The side-navigation of the docs can be improved as well. I think the labels of the 1st-level links aren't specific enough. Especially not for newbies. Why don't you unfold all the sections, so everyone can use `cmd-f` to search for the specific keyword, if the search functions isn't working properly? This would be pretty nice.

A doc with a good search function, is for instance Laravel's documentation. The labels of the 1st-level links within the sidebar are well selected and the search function let's you find what you're searching for.

Hope you can see the need for improvements for the docs.
