Search box focus

Using OnLoad

When using the HB search page, one has to click into the search box before typing.

Using a javascript OnLoad element, the cursor can be focused in the search box automatically, and one could simply start typing the search terms. (For example, Google does this.)

[OnLoad = "document.searchexpression.focus();"] in the body tag should do it. I know you're not a big fan of javascript, jutta, but this one seems pretty useful and harmless.
