Keyword Search on Just One Page

Is there a script that I can use so that people can do a keyword search on just the page they are on?

RE: Keyword Search on Just One Page

I use this JavaScript on a page I have..

Put this in the HEAD SECTION....

<!-- Begin
var NS4 = (document.layers);
var IE4 = (document.all);

var win = this;
var n   = 0;

function findInPage(str) {
var txt, i, found;
if (str == "")
return false;
if (NS4) {
if (!win.find(str))
while(win.find(str, false, true))
if (n == 0) alert(str + " was not found on this page.");
if (IE4) {
txt = win.document.body.createTextRange();
for (i = 0; i <= n && (found = txt.findText(str)) != false; i++) {
txt.moveStart("character", 1);
if (found) {
txt.moveStart("character", -1);
else {
if (n > 0) {
n = 0;
alert(str + " was not found on this page.");
return false;
//  End -->

Put this where you want the search form

<form name=search onSubmit="return findInPage(this.string.value);">
        <font color="#072B6D">Search for Name:</font>
            <input name=string type=text size=25 onChange="n = 0;">
            <input name=submit type=submit value="Search" style="font-size: 11; font-family: Arial">&nbsp;<hr size="1">

Hope this helps
