Very worth reading

I'm using the jscript code in your searching article to create a keyword search feature for HTML based online help. I modified the code to have fewer fields and eliminated the check boxes. I changed it to only search one of the fields. Then I added a variable to tell me if there were any matches and another output function so that if there aren't any matches I can tell the user that there were no matches. I've run into one problem. With one set of "setArticle" lines in search.htm, it works fine. With another set, it doesn't find any matches. I cannot see any difference in my syntax between the two. Making the list shorter or longer doesn't seem to make a difference. Any ideas on what might be causing the second array to choke?
