Need a solution sharpish on this one.

I have created a CD with a listing of speaker papers at an upcoming conference using html and CSS2. Client wants to have a search facility on the page to search by speaker name and only display "records" that match (record contains a link to pdfs of their presentation(s) on the CD).

Ideally should work cross-platform but a Windows ## at the least.

We need to start producing them tomorrow so any solutions appreciated!

Thanks

Found a solution - JQUERY! Just add the jquery library to your cd from http://jquery.com

Found the code to do the searching from here:

Hi there

I think it would work but I would have had to have extracted the info from my main page and divided it up into searchable bits; doable but not nice. (Actually only searching one page whereas the zoomsearch program is more aimed at whole sites.)
jquery thing is exactly wh
You can have the points though ;0)
