Please sign all comments.

This is a basic search bookmarklet derived from http://www.bookmarklets.com/mk.phtml which allows users to construct their own javascript bookmarklets as long as the search term appears in the url somewhere. James 05:13, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

The original version works up to Firefox 8.0, which apparently introduced some subtle changes in its Javascript engine. Fortunately, Martin Holmes has found out a fix and kindly posted it on the TEI-L mailing list. Rvdb

Support for TEI

It assists users to look things up in the public TEI documentation quickly.


The language of english is hard-coded in the URL, however users may change this to any of the internationalised versions of the TEI, and it might work.


Only documentation is the web page at http://james.cummingsfamily.org.uk/TEI/TEI-LookUp.html
