Unfortunately, there are often inconsistencies in the names of input
parameters and their corresponding configuration attributes or template
variables. The name matches_per_page refers to the config attribute
in htdig.conf, while the name matchesperpage is the search form input
parameter that overrides it. The documentation in hts_form.html explains
what input parameters may be set in the search form, or in a query string.
