Thanks Kevin, that's very useful.

I've tossed together a quick one for icdevgroup based on what I
learned from yours.  Tested only in firefox.

Save this as icdev_search.html:

<title>Add icdevgroup search </title>
	title="ICDevgroup website website">
Should be able to add it

Then save this as 'icdev_search.xml' in the same directory:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<OpenSearchDescription xmlns="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/"
	<ShortName>icdevgroup.org search</ShortName>

		Search the Interchange documentation at www.icdevgroup.org

	<Url type="text/html" method="POST"
		<Param name="search_mailinglists" value="1"/>
		<Param name="mv_searchspec" value="{searchTerms}"/>
	<Image width="16" height="16">http://www.icdevgroup.org/favicon.ico</Image>


Open the page in your browser and see the option to add an icdevgroup
search as an option when choosing which search engine you want.

Hope this is useful to others.
