No - while Google may keep source code in its indexes, it does not provide a facility for searching sites' markup.

Though it should be noted that Google did offer a labs product called Google Code Search, for searching open source code - which is probably where this idea comes from. – toomanyairmiles Jun 6 '12 at 21:05
