Search EKP's catalogs from your browser's search box

EKP 5.0 makes it possible to search EKP's course catalogs directly from the search box of Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox 2.

When a user visits EKP using Internet Explorer 7, the drop-down arrow of the search box "lights up" to indicate that EKP has been added to the drop-down menu.
