I see that now, and yes, perhaps a caption on the search box would help... Also typing C, C, enter doesn't work - that does surprise me. There is still something amiss with the search apparently not using the tool description line, for instance neither "acid" nor "nucleic" nor "factional" show the EMBOSS geecee tool. If the search is indexing on the tool's main help text, then for the EMBOSS tools it would help to have an executive summary with key words in it, rather than just a link to the EMBOSS webpage for each tool.
