Question .txt files and Search Engines

Hey all,
I am developing a new site. The bulk of the site consists of various writing that are in .txt form. (Eventually there will be over a thousand .txt files).

I have a couple questions I'm hoping someone can address or offer suggestions.

1. I want search capabilities on the site so that users can search through the .txt files and their content. Are there any search scripts that can do this? Any suggestions?

2. It isn't possible to put html code in .txt files (i don't think) Therefore it isn't possible to have advertisements in the .txt files. I really don't want this to happen because it is basically throwing away a lot of pageviews. But I can't afford to take the time to change all the .txt files into html files. Any suggestions as to how I can squeeze extra banner views out of these .txt files?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
