the whole template is wrapped in a <pre> tag, so ya it would be a bitch 
to wrap a blockquote around them all.. this is only temporary till we're 
pulling off the DB anyway.

cool. I've got a collection on l.e.o called 'archive' which is what the 
search engine on that server runs off.. how do you search on a 
collection on another box? or, if you have 3 collections on one box, how 
would one search the (currently) flat files on another box?

again, once we're pulling out of the DB, this won't be an issue, since 
we'll have a single source from which to buiuld the collections..
