gt;As for the seach engine, I found it to be fairly peppy. It might be nice to have a way for the engine to put the seach words in bold print so that the user knows where in the text to skim to.


Nice idea on the bold search terms. But once the link is listed on the search results page, it isn't active any more. The page displays the way it does any time it's hit.

I wanted to show about 50 words before and after the search terms, and then have it show up directly underneath the link to the page, but with an indexed search, it was more modification of the search script than I could manage.
