ISINDEX - Input Prompt
||APPLET, BLOCKQUOTE, BODY, CENTER, DD, DEL, DIV, FIELDSET, FORM, HEAD, IFRAME, INS, LI, MAP, NOFRAMES, NOSCRIPT, OBJECT, TD, TH
The ISINDEX element defines a single-line text input. The label of the input field is specified using the element's PROMPT attribute. ISINDEX is deprecated in HTML 4.0 in favor of the INPUT element.
When the user presses the enter key within the input field, the input field's text is sent to the server in a query string appended to the document's base URI. The query string takes the form "?text+of+input+field"; spaces are encoded as "+".
