ISINDEX - Primitive search

This element is also available in our updated HTML 4 reference. Some characteristics may have changed.

Appearance: <ISINDEX>
Attributes: PROMPT=string.
Contents: None (Empty).
May occur in: HEAD.

The ISINDEX tag was used before FORMs became more popular. When inserted in a document, it will allow the user to enter keywords which are then sent to the server. The server then executes a search and returns the results. The PROMPT attribute can be used to override the default text in the dialog box ("Enter search keywords: ").
