Subject: Search utility for HTML documentation?

Nathalie Laroche wondered: <<The documentation that we provide with our
product includes about 1000 HTML pages and a dozen PDF files. We would like
to add a search utility to our documentation, but I can't seem to find what
I am looking for. This utility would need to run locally (offline), both on
Unix and Windows platforms. Ideally, it would also be cheap.>>

They are both short and can be incorporated into your doc package.
