Maybe since I'm using Safari for the Mac (or for some problem with this site), I had to reenter all this information.

Anyhow just wanted to inform people who use Mac OSX that there is a cool free program you can download which will allow you to do searches of the Baha'i Library site without even needing to open a window yourself in your browser and taking time to find the Baha'i Library.

You can download this program, "Huevos", at http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=14301&db=mac . Click "Download".

To add the Baha'i site, go to preferences, click "new", type in a name (such as "Bahá'í) under "name" then paste all of the following into the URL section: http://www.google.com/custom?q=%@&cof=LW%3A561%3BBIMG%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fbahai-library.org%2Fback015.gif%3BL%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fbahai-library.org%2Fgraphics%2Flogo.gif%3BLC%3A%23004834%3BLH%3A44%3BAH%3Acenter%3BVLC%3A%23BF1000%3BGL%3A0%3BAWFID%3Af35eea7fb2567a11%3B&domains=bahai-library.org&sitesearch=bahai-library.org

I added Huevos as an alias to DropDrawers--another excellent program so I can quickly access it if I do not have it already open (though you could add it to your Login Items so it is always available). Since it is open source, maybe a mac programmer could program it to become hot-key enabled or menu bar enabled, and give it a preference to hide in the background. But otherwise, it's an excellent program.

You can add other sites by doing a search at the site in question, pasting the resulting URL into the preferences new item, and replacing the search item that showed up in the URL with the string %@ . I did this also for Wikipedia by typing in:
