Hi

this happens using a Netscape 4.79 running on a NT 4.0 machine
with SP 5 installed.

Following the same entries using a IE 4.72 with Java logging
und Java JIT compiler but no Java console enabled being run
on the same machine

Netscape 4.79
em => 2 Windows NT
(em is not listed in your module index)

m => 7 Miscellaneous
mm => 7 Miscellaneous
(m and mm is not listed in your module index)

ma => Manual Page Index
(though there is "make" as the first entry starting with "ma"
in module index)

mak => make

cal => calendar

mn => mnesia

/Netscape 4.79

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
IE 4.72
em => Manual Page Index
(em is not listed in your module index)

m => Manual Page Index
mm => Manual Page Index
(m and mm is not listed in your module index)

ma => Manual Page Index
(though there is "make" as the first entry starting with "ma"
in module index)

mak => Manual Page Index

make => Manual Page Index

cal => Manual Page Index

mn => Manual Page Index


In other words: No module is found, i.e. no man page is displayed

Two oddities occured while using IE 4.72:
a) Every time I clicked into the search field it's whole frame moved up to
IE's upper edge and every time the Manual Page Index was displayed
again the search fields and the two buttons "slide done" to the "dividing
line"
between this frame an the Manual Page Index

b) The screening of your list and the display of the result takes a whole
lot
longer then with Netscape 4.79, i.e. something like 3 seconds vs. 0.5
seconds

/IE 4.72
