Using the CLEO detector at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring we have searched for neutral-Higgs-boson production in B decay, both through the exclusive modes BH0K and BH0K* using the decay of the H0 into a pair of muons, pions, or kaons, and through the inclusive decay BH0X using only the muon decay of the H0. We find no evidence for a Higgs boson with a mass between 2m and 2m.
