I like the idea of the new search, but I don't like the requirement of Internet access to be able to use it. The useless 2nd doc CD should include an exported TS and the init.ora and scripts to recreate the OracleText DB that Oracle probably uses to do the search. I suppose that it would have to include the 9iAS setup, too, although I'm not as keen on that one.

Then again, that's assuming it would even fit on a CD or two... :)

You *can* "write" your own notes, but it takes a lot of work (editing of HTML and/or PDFs) and the search results won't point to your edited docs. Unless you dump the contents of the CD to a webserver like OSU for VMS (I haven't had time to setup Apache yet, but CGIs in DCL *rock*!), and do your own custom highlights, editing, and searches...
