input { width:150; text-align:center; }
//-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<!--
function copydata() {

    myapple = "0.7.1.0.5.11.1.0.1.4"
    document.google.q.value      = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.teoma.q.value       = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.lycos.query.value   = document.myinput.search.value;
    document.apple.myapple.value = document.myinput.search.value;
   
    }
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<form name="myinput">
<input class="text" type="text" name="search" size="20" maxlength="255">
