Ahh, I see. Some do have a banner - Marc should be able to tell us how
many exactly. I suspect it's about 10 - 20%.

I believe most of them are the freebies. I'm not adverse to losing the
ads altogether, but I do think we should credit the mirrors in a visible
way (ie. Not one specific page). On the mirror selection page, or a
per-mirror footnote seem the best options.

Assuming they *all* implement it. If some don't (which will probably be
the case) we'll be left with some broken HTML.

If you can persuade them to do that then I would be most impressed :-)

However, what problems do you have with the current search?
