Google Gadgets

I have spent a large part of the morning working on a Google gadget for our catalog. I had a really nice response from Priscilla Finley of the University of Las Vegas about how easy they were to create. I went back and cut and pasted the HTML code from our Web site into the editor and got it to look beautiful, but clicking on "Search" makes the words disappear and you just stay where you were. Our code involves some Javascript in the header and I don't know how to add that in. I did add it, but since there's no "head", I think that is the problem.

We have code for a quicksearch box with Reference Universe that does not have that script in the header, I think I'll try to make a gadget for that...

It's been an emotional morning.
