JavaScript: JS Search Engine

This simple search engine allows you to define the keywords and descriptions for a specific set of searchable items, which then link to the URL you specify, using the title you define. Because it is written in pure JavaScript, this search engine can be distributed with CD-ROM copies of a website, and can run on servers where server-side scripts and programs are not available.
