For static content, I suggest bzip2 all of it and I set up a local
mirror which I can crawl (configured as www.postgresql.org) so the
search engine thinks it's crawling the real thing.

I'll crawl to a new database not to upset the old and we can then switch
over at the same time. (I assume you get all of it ready at a new
location, and then kindof like flick a switch?)

Any thoughts on using XSL/XML for the search engine templates?
Seperating content from layout is a good thing me thinks.

btw, http://search.oztralis.com.au/test.php?q=weekly&cs=utf-8 is made
with xml/xsl, you can see the

xsl here: http://search.oztralis.com.au/xsl/en.xsl
xml here: http://search.oztralis.com.au/cgi-bin/pg.cgi?q=weekly&cs=utf-8

It uses php for some pre/post processing of the XML required to make it
valid XML, (until I figure out how to use libxml2 to WRITE xml
documents).
