Subject Sort order for search results?
A couple questions about search results have come up at our site:

1. How are search results sorted? Do we have any control over the sort
order? Our site is currently use mg, though we plan to experiment
with mgpp once some other issues are resolved, if that makes a
difference.

2. We want to change the default maximum documents returned by a
search from 50 to all documents matching the search. Similarly, we
want to change the default hits per page to show all hits on one
page. Reading _maxdocoption_ and _hitsperpageoption_ in prefs.dm,
this seems a bit unlikely. Ideas?
