Thank you all for your very helpful advice on the ht-dig search engine, and
I will try to RTFM in future...Now for a real tricky problem, which maybe
one of you will be able to solve.

I run a news website from Dublin - RTE News Online, it's on
http://www.rte.ie/news/. We are configuring ht-dig to run as our search
engine. One of the search functionalities that I wish to include is a date
range, which will restrict a search to stories say, between March 1999 and
February 2000.

Luckily our site is structured on a date-based directory system - today's
news can be found in http://www.rte.ie/news/2000/0824/

So, I need to allow users to select two dates on the page (say 1999/03 and
2000/02 to use the example above) and then restrict searches to any URLs
containing the following

1999/03, 1999/04, 1999/05, 1999/06, 1999/07, 1999/08, 1999/09, 1999/10,
1999/11, 1999/12, 2000/01, 2000/02

Anyone know a good way of doing this?
