Can't agree more. You'd think it would be easy to simply index your help site, place a search box on each page, then let people search for anything...but alas. [sigh] This is so difficult that we all ignore it and open our sites up to search engines. I did it on Microsoft one time and what a nightmare that was. :-)

Searching Rocket website is difficult.

The other day someone on this list was searching for Tech support
Survivor's guide.
Did he find it?  We were told he needed a 2UBC login to get to it.  Not
for the riffraff.

Try finding Mark Baldridge's "Hitchhiker's Guide To UniVerse", which

Go to  homepage & enter some variants of
      "Hitchhiker's guide to the universe"
at the search prompt of rocket software homepage.
       "Your search yielded no results"
Keep going.   You can limit the product families to "U2". (Although I
don't think that really does anything.)  Nada.
Tell me how long it takes to find it.

Try to find out what particular error codes mean.

Known issues and the release where they are fixed are buried in some
help file you can get to only by looking up particular releases in a

"Revise".  Posted the q here & got 2 answers.
