I guess I'm not quite sure what you're asking. At the moment, it's
difficult to do searches on "author," "title," "topic" or whatever.
Ht://Dig is really designed as a general-purpose search engine, so it
indexes the text of the pages. Personally, I find it does a good job on
turning up titles, authors, etc. from the pages themselves.

As far as cost, ht://Dig is free software, shipped under the GNU public
license. This means that it's released at no cost and that the source code
is publically available.

As far as languages, there is support for indexing languages other than
English. I'm not the best person to talk to, though. :-(

I hope I've answered your questions.
