I am not familiar enough with the template to correct the 'third-person singular simple present'. It really should be "searches" not "searchs". -- 19:24, 3 November 2005 (UTC)

Do we clearly enuf distinguish

"on a/the search for"

as opp'd to "

"in search of"

-- or is that nuance between types of search and/or searching too subtle?
