We are preparing a documentation CD that will have an HTML front end for navigating to about 35 PDF files.

I know users can use Adobe Reader's search function to point to the location of files to search, but what are some other ways to add a fast and reliable full text search feature of the files through the web browser?

Is a third party solution needed, or can this be coded using HTML, JavaScript, or other means?
