: From: Oliver Lineham
: 1.  i get no results for "splash page" but it shows
:      up for just "splash" -- which is funny since
:      "splash page" is in the title and body of the article.

a search for "splash page" wasn't finding anything because the search string
was being seen as


: 2.  after submitting "splash page", the form displayed
:      on the results page contains "splash+page", which
:      if submitted returns a form with "splash%2Bpage",
:      which if submitted predictably returns
:      "splash%252Bpage", which if submitted returns
:      "splash%25252Bpage", which if submitted.. okay
:       i'll stop now :)

fwiw, this is fixed now.  a search for "splash page" returns a result -
aardvark's article.

: aard's code samples are in <pre> tags, but don't show
: up within textareas like on the example page at
: http://www.roselli.org/new_evolt/layout/article.asp.  has
: that thing not been written yet?  how is it going to be
: done - textarea's generated on the fly each time the
: article is loaded or what?

this hasn't been written yet.  theoretically it should be easy to write.
lemme take a gander at it.  to answer your question, it will generate them
on the fly each time the article is loaded.
