I want to add an Accessible search function to our website - the only
way I can do this is to find a search system that can return its
results as an XML document.
I am currently using FreeFind.com which is a great search system but
only returns the data in HTML (really old HTML too).
Another one I have found is FusioBot - this DOES return XML but I have
no way of being able to exculde parts of the page (eg the navigation -
I don't want every page to come back as a match for 'Contact' just cos
it is a word in the nav).
Again - FusionBot offers a soulution to this (by using index and
noindex tags) but these would make the page fail Accessibility checks.
I have been looking into this for weeks now - does anyone have any
alternatives or suggestions? We want the search function to be a part
of our site - not an external thing like Google Site Search.
