Subject AW: Re[2]: Download Access to Developer List archive

I am using as list archive. 
For all IE users: you can customize IE so that you can search there easily
by editing
the windows registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


And you can type into the IE adress field something like "marc-ant-dev
and IE will do the search.

* under ...SearchUrl you can insert new "search" words, in this case the
magic word
  is "marc-ant-dev" (for searching inside the ant-dev list on marc)
* the default value (@) describes the URL to invoke. %s is the url-encoded
* only HTTP GETs are valid, so if you have the request to send a POST you
have to
  hack a little bit more: provide a local html page which converts the GET
to a POST
  and refer to that. E.g. searching inside the Amazon (German) website is
done via
  POST request. So the searchstring refers to a local HTML page
  and that page does the transformation

<script language="JavaScript">
function init() {
  param =;
  if (param != "") {
    param = param.substring(6);
    param = decodeURI(param);

    document.forms[0].elements[0].value = param;
  } else {

<body onload="init()">

<form name="search" method="post"
  <input type="text" name="field-keywords" size="40" maxlength="200">
  <input type="submit">
  <input type="hidden" name="size" value=10>
  <input type="hidden" name="url" value="index=blended">


You can create that page by extracting the form from a page and type in the
url as action.

Works very well for me
