have you taken a look at sourceforge.net or other script sites?
The only search I can think of is htdig.org but that probably doesn't fit the criteria.

You're only recourse here is to build/download/buy a search engine that will search the db. One that I've used and found to be reasonalby good is DGS Search [digitalgenesis.com]

Forgive me if I'm way off here. Couldn't you query certain database fields for the keywords?
SELECT FROM db WHERE title LIKE "keyword";
Sorry if that was stupid, I'm a db newbie!

not stupid at all Birdman,
That would all depend on how/what you are storing.

If your 'almost static' web site has URLs that stay the same from visit to visit for the same content, then a normal spidering search engine should work fine. I've also used Birdman's solution before, but I don't think the results are as good as I get with ht://Dig, so I'd tend to use that sort of engine anywhere it would work. It ought to be fine on an 'almost static' page, and it's very customizable.

thanks, for your replyes!
the problem I'm having is that most of the content won't go into a DB.... and can't use a regular filesystem search beacuse the linking system is not standard... I'll keep looking, some of the links you guys sent me may solve my problem!
