The example you posted does. It is missing a closing # sign. But from what
you described, I assume that is just a typo.

The documentation is the best resource for how the different functions operate:
[i]Returns: Index of the first list element that contains value, with matching
case. If not found, returns zero. The search is case-sensitive.[/i]

ListFind is performs case sensitive search. So if your list contains "Other",
then searching for "other" (lowercase) will not find a match. To ignore case,
use ListFindNoCase instead.
Other things to be aware of are that any spaces in between the list elements
can result in a failure to find a match. It is because the spaces are treated
as part of the list element value.
