Web Search?

I saw in another post that Web Search was on your to-do list. Is it bubbling up or still low-pri?

This is not a complaint BTW, I can use the HTML Help if the users require the search function.

If you use Index.aspx as the default page, the search feature is there (the magnifying glass button located above the TOC pane). It uses ASP.NET so that it can do Ajax calls to load the tree on demand and perform the search. The search is keyword based and doesn't support any logical operators yet but that may change in the future. Note that if you build a website and choose the Open Help File option, it'll default to trying to launch the ASP.NET version by default using the build-in .NET web server. I haven't implemented search for the pure HTML page (Index.html) and don't plan on doing so since it would probably have to all work client-side via script and the index can be quite large for big projects.
