consider the following search (which appeared in my logs):

the same article exists on three different sites...  my personal site 
doesn't make it in at all (well, not in the first two screens), but the 
following two entries appear:

Liquid Design for the Web - Algonquin Studios - Web & Enterprise 
Software Solution... 
With so many users and so many variables that control window 
size, you've got an infinite number of possible dimensions in users' 
browser windows. This article will address screen resolution by 
offering some tips and caveats for liquid design.
Highlighted Result (new!)
alltheweb (2), Lycos (5) 

Liquid Design for the Web : evolt.org, Site Development 
A world community for web developers, evolt.org promotes the 
mutual free exchange of ideas, skills and experiences.
Highlighted Result (new!)
AOL (2), MSN (6) 

interestingly, it pulls the meta description from the page as the 
abstract for the search results...

perhaps we could do the same for our articles?  use the abstract 
from the article as the meta description?

does anyone have any interest in that?  or see any value in it?
