Well, here's my workaround. I don't like it (but I guess that's why we
call them workarounds...).
Create dummy files in my fs which contain (in meta tags) the words I
want to map to certain external sites. Like so:
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="1; url=http://www.swish-e.org">
<meta name='keywords' content='Search tool'>
A search on -w '"Search tool"' will now return a link which says
Swish-e and redirects to that site (even tho' the page itself is on
my local site).
It's a bit 'smoke & mirrors'. Is there a better way?
