I would like to create a simple search box to add to any html page, in an intranet settings, so that you enter what you are searching and then it displays where it finds the data.
If you click on the search results line it will take you to that location.

Are we talking about searching the HTML pages themselves?
Why not use Google Custom Search

There are other crawlers you can use to build a database of searches, but Google would be the best.

This would be for searching content of an html page which is on an intranet, not the internet.

Is there not a way that a search box on the same intranet web page can search for data and find it without employing the use of a crawler?  This if for an intranet HTML page,

Not without parsing every page every time someone does a search which will take a long time and is not the way to do it.
