There are now 38 of the very popular "Tip of the month" on the "User-friendly
manuals' website", and I have had some complaints, that it was becoming a bit
difficult to find a subject. Not any longer !!!

I'm happy to announce, that I have now been able to add a search engine which
can search on titles, descriptions and keywords for all "tip of the month"
files.

It works at least with Netscape Navigator 4 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 2+.
Netscape Navigator 3 makes the search correctly and then crashes and I have
consequently blocked it until this problem has been solved (I have tried a
lot.)

So far search engines has been cgi-script based, and none were offered by my
host. But last week I found an HTML/JavaScript based search engine which works
very nicely after some heavy modifications. If you are interested, you can take
a look at the code.
