Hi Henny

The search form is defined in and, see _queryform_,
_queryformcontent_, _textselect_, _textsimplesearch_ etc.

defines the index drop down box, and is set by the
receptionist - see set_option_macro in src/recpt/queryaction.cpp
the some/all box is defined by _formquerytypeselection_ macro in

I don't know if you can change the colour etc of form components - there
are lots of html/css tutorials on the internet, I suggest you have a
look there.

The about page text is output by


The requested page could not be found. Please use your browsers 'back' button or the above home button to return to the Greenstone Digital Library.: About ( and
How to find information in the Greenstone Archives collection collection

There are _numbrowseoptions_ ways to find information in this collection: _textbrowseoptions_ ( The actual
text for the help bits is output by the receptionist, in
src/recpt/pageaction, define_internal_macros.

I suggest you look at the html output of the page, work out what
html/css is needed to change the font, and then add it in to the macro
files. or css file (images/style.css)
