Also should have added - The high level search results are a list of
technical terms listed in an accumulator. A 'search within results' function
is required since this list could be very lengthy.

Subject: best practices for search within results


Hi everybody,

I'm looking for best practices / examples on 'search within results' for a
web application.

The specific questions I am looking at are:
1) Is it better to display two separate search boxes or use one box to
search and then search within results?
2) If two boxes are used, what ways can they be visually differentiated?
3) Once a search within results is done, how does one get back to the
original search results?


Thanks in advance!

Best Regards

Devika Ganapathy
