Ironically, something about the LI tags in this post breaks the XHTML compliance.

"There's no trick to it, it's just a simple trick"? Interesting way of putting it. ;)

Hi there.
Will you contribute your simple search-script? Did you switch to SQL with MT 2.21 for this?
Maybe you can help out a perl-DAU like me...

Nico, I based my script off the one described in this A List Apart article: A Search Engine in Perl

Well, thanx for that link, Pinder. I'll try...

No chance we will ever see that kode for your search component in the evil Perl for Movable Type?

Since you've asked, here it is as is. It's not a proper component perl script for MT. It's just a basic search script that searches the contents of .html files in the archives folder. I will probably replace it with a php script when I updgrade MT to the mysql compatible version.

The search script is fantastic. I have implemented some of diveintomark.org accessibility tips in particular providing alternate navigation using <link> tags. The article is found here. Problem is the script picks up the query terms in the <link> tags. Is there a way to exclude the link tags in the search. My lack of knowledge of Perl is really showing here. Any help appreciated.

You'd need some regular expression to parse out the tags. Sorry, I'm no regex expert. Try google or google groups!
