Hi all,

Well I had sent this earlier but i want to resend this again!! I have not
yet received a reply back. 

Can anyone suggest me a way out ???

I have lots of old html/ documents that I want to publish through my zope
portal. To ensure that I do not tweak html files I have used the LocalFS
product, also I do not want to **load the data.fs**. Now. I am running into
search problems. How do i do a search the filesystem file? and also ensure
that the search results come from both the filesystem files and the portal

I guess there are two ways ??
** attach a search engine to index on the filesystem files and let zcatalog
take care of the rest.
** or make all those html files zcatalog aware.But then u cant look inside
pdf/latex/word docs or do u??.

I guess I would prefer the first one !! gut feel probably that would require
less effort and I can support different file formats . Has anyone used a
FREE external search engine ith zope before.If so which one is it ???

Strange though it seems, we are *not* Zope experts (yet).  We used an
external volunteer to set up our site.  I recommend that you post your
