Thanks for the cool - much appreciated. The words are stored in a simple database built using mysql. The page has two frames, the top frame loads an html page with a lot of links which call a cgi script written in perl - each link is customised to pass the search parameters as part of the call. Finally, the perlscript interrogates the database and builds the results page which is displayed in the bottom frame. Doing the html and perl coding, and building the database, was quite easy. The hard bit was pursuading the pages, scripts and database to talk to each other on the website... Rik -- The Gevey language reference
