Modify the way a web page is displayed within the browser (e.g., change the font size, background color, etc.).
Extract data from a web page (e.g., hyperlinks, images, text, etc.).
Jump directly to a search engine, with the search term(s) input either from a new dialog box, or from a selection already made on a web page.
Submit the page to a validation service.
The following lines, when joined together to form a bookmarklet, will search PESWiki for the string currently highlighted in the browser, or else, if nothing is selected, it will display a dialog box form field in which to enter a search string. This bookmarklet works in Mozilla Firefox and Konqueror (Minitools):
This version works in Apple Computer's Safari web browser:
This version works in Internet Explorer:
To install the previous bookmarklet in Internet Explorer, follow these steps:
