A better search engine 2010.06.17

After considering many helpful comments and suggestions from ATI readers, I've finally replaced the search engine with a better one. Now you can locate short phrases like "the All", find suttas by reference number (e.g., "SN 56.11"), and perform the full array of complex Google searches. It's also far more forgiving of misspellings, sometimes suggesting alternate spellings (e.g., a search for "anatalakana" will prompt you to try "anattalakkhana"). It may not be perfect, but it's definitely Google-good. I hope it helps you find what you need.
