Earle, Thanks for doing that. It's nice to try the search out on a full sized Grubstreet.
I notice that HTML needs to be escaped out in the search results - I will work on this.

Also, do we want to display the first x matches (for example, x=10: 1..10, 11..20 12,,30 etc.)? Is it worthwhile building in the
functionality to present matches x at a time? I will look at how to do this, but this may be overkill for Grubstreet.

On the ++ side, regarding performance, all the searches I have given have been pretty much instantaneous.

Please let me have feedback.
