this requires some javascript and a severside scripting language

you will need experience of seaching and returning results from a database

do you know any php / javascript

Yo newbie. wats the situtation where u wanna use this search function.
if its just text and headings u want users to search (from ur site pages) for you can configure a little javascript google search box to just search withing your site (so no other hits from anywhere get caught).
Or are you going to want to search a database full of products or something, coz that would def require php, aspx or perl server-side-scripting

let me kno and i can make one for you.
