Thanks for your response!

I was thinking that that was what the patched-swish-e+jsFind combination
would give me. The patch enables swish-e to output the index as XML,
swish-e itself to be delivered at all.
The down side is that the patch (for 18.104.22.168) was never incorporated
into swish-e proper, and jsFind has been orphaned.

Thanks for the link -- I'd hadn't found this resource. The hard part,
though, is coming up with the database to query. As the chapter says "If
your site has more than a few hundred web pages, you'll probably want to
have a server-side program generate the code containing all the
records." That is what I thought swish-e could help with.
I live in a Python world, where it has now been suggested to use
BeautifulSoup <http://www.crummy.com/software/BeautifulSoup/> to extract
the words and create an index. I think that will work, albeit slowly.
