Help me out Dan, how does what you described differ from the search engine
that is already on the site?

James,

It would be a cross between an index and a search engine, so
people using it could "know" what items are indexed in techref,
rather than have to guess. It would not require any "explicit"
cross-linking however, but just a way to direct the keyword
clicked upon into the search engine -[this cannot be too hard].

You would "not" want to use pop up/scrollable windows - [too bad
someone did not shoot Steve Jobs immediately after he invented those]
- but rather would look something like the index in a book - multiple
columns, easily scanned with minimual scrolling. Something like the
following - you could easily display 100-150 keywords on one webpage
prior to scrolling:


Enter Search word, or click on keyword

I'd have preferred right *before* the unhappy event...
