Talk:Using keyword searches

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

We should make the article less Mozilla-UI-dependent and get rid of "this also applies...". Just state that Mozilla Suite and Firefox support keyword searches.

Firefox_:_Tips_:_Quick_searches needs to be merged into this.

If someone here knows, could instructions be added as far as how one might mass-import a number of keyword searches, just as into a file? I am using Sogudi which does the equivalent of these keyword searched but for Safari for the Mac, and I have quite a large number of shortcuts and URL's I'd like to import all at once. Thanks...

This is all rather outdated given the Firefox support for Smart Keywords maybe we should merge these two articles into a new article Using Keywords and Smart Keywords, I rekon we can chop most of this stuff given that using Smart Keywords is more intuitive.

Any reason we started using character entities (&#XXX;) heavily? This makes the article unreadable for editors and gains no advantage for the reader, since MozillaZine uses quite a small font.

Also, could we please not use code tag for something that is not code? Use tt instead. --asqueella 02:30, 19 October 2005 (PDT)

The code markup was a mistake; I've fixed that. I've converted the numeric entities to named entities; if you'd like to do away with them altogether you might want to comment in the In-House Style discussion. --Unarmed 07:05, 19 October 2005 (PDT)
I'm okay with dash entity, but not with the apos, lquo, and others. hao2lian is right, this should be solved via a Mediawiki hack. --asqueella 07:48, 21 October 2005 (PDT)

Support for non-UTF8 encoding

Changes from bug 258223 should be documented here. (Specifically the 'mozcharset=xxx' tip.) I don't use this feature so I'm not willing to write documentation myself. --asqueella 20:57, 1 January 2006 (UTC)


There is a small database of intuitive keywords in, and a firefox addon that allows to make use of them.
