Silly Javascript requirements (Re: HTML 5.0)

I started to set up a custom Google search for my course pages at
students' request, but abandoned the effort when I found out that it
requires Javascript.  I can't imagine why Google has such a
requirement, since the search processing has to be done server side.

Fortunately, I discovered that Google's "site" keyword ("domains" and
"sitesearch" field in the form) can be specified down to the
directory level, not just domain, so I was able to implement search
with just the standard Google form.  You can find an example, if
you're interested, at /
