But I think it would be so slow... Being orthogonal to HTML, also, an
XML search engine should be able to work on different data, like, since
most of the DTDs are "site specific", working on the contexts where
keywords to search are found (If I look for a product called "FOOBAR" on
my site, the search engine might be "clever" enough to search the word
"foobar" in the <product> tag...)
