<form>tag, there was a simpler mechanism called
<ISINDEX>. I was reminded about this because someone asked why CGI examples showed urls without
name=valuepairs in the
?querysection, like this:
I then went to see if <ISINDEX> still worked in modern browsers. I discovered that in
Safari, it renders a box, but there seems to be no way to submit the query (traditionally, pressing enter would submit it). Lynx and w3m still support it.
From others, I hear:
apparently the default browser on the g1 doesn't even recognize isindex as some sort of input field, although it renders it as such.
sort of weird; won't let you type in it but it renders an input box
and Chrome is also reported to work correctly.
Anyway, this post has an isindex tag right here:
<--- there, so you can see how it works in your browser...
