Yes, I'll do that now.

If it's going to be so visible, yes, that would be a good idea.

Me too. We need to go on a publicity blitz.

Good plan. Unfortunately, I seem to have hit a bug. Try pasting the
following code into HomePage somewhere and hitting "Preview" - it sends me
to the index of all pages, for some reason. 

<form method="post" action="" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
Search the site: <input type="text" name="search" size="20" />
<input type="hidden" name="dosearch" value="1" />

That's the code, anyway. Maybe you can get it to work. Or we could have a
separate "Search" page, with searching tips, linked to from the main links,

you only have to read the lines 
they're scribbly black and everything shines
