hi all,

but you should know this

Mgpp offers more
-easy searching for metadata (--> structurizing collections)
-using search form (not everybody is familiar with |&!)
-proximity searching

The mentioned patch fixed "the slight problem" for Netscape and IE6,
but not for older IE (Stefan Boddie may be something coooking; if you
are unpatient mail me and I will send you search form that works in
old NN a IE - and therefore in newer ones too)

there is one thing that MGPP does not - building index at paragraph
level (at least on Windows)

so, In my opininion - simple collections mg, less simple coll mgpp

(thanks to both development teams)

peace

Roman
