In praise of staticSearch

Over the last few weeks, I have worked intensively with staticSearch to integrate it into our forthcoming publication of Edvige Agostinelli and Bill Coleman's digital edition of  Boccaccio's Teseida.

As you can see (try searching for "come" by typing it in the search box and hitting return, or the search icon) staticSearch works beautifully here. And hence my final word on staticSearch. This is a quite wonderful tool. It is lightning fast, easy to set up, and works like a dream. As a true Endings tool, it has no dependencies on any outside systems of any kind. Take a bow, Martin Holmes and Joey Takeda (and everyone else who has contributed). Great work.
