I have managed a bit of a kludge:
[code]

<p>
Google kubuntu-users mailing list Search<br />
<span style="font-size: 80%;">Tip: Leave the 'kubuntu-users+mailing+list' phrase intact.</span>
</p>
     <form action="http://www.google.com/search" method="get" id="google_general">
       <p>
	<input type="text"   name="q" size="31" maxlength="500" id="google_general-input" 
value="kubuntu-users+mailing+list&nbsp;" />
	<input type="submit" value="Search" />
       </p>
     </form>

[code]

It would be nice to be able to *hide* the 'kubuntu-users+mailing+list' in the 'value' field.
Any ideas?

Blessings,

Nigel
