Octber 2009 Update
New feature: "search within this article"
We are very happy to announce that you can now choose to limit your search to the article you are viewing. Allowing users to search for terms within a single article, this new functionality is particularly helpful with large articles spread over multiple pages, such as large country articles and articles on families.
This new search tool has been developed in response to user feedback. We are confident that this enhancement will greatly improve users' research experience. The "search within this article" box is located near the top left of each entry. Simply click on the plus sign [+] to open the search box, enter your term (s) and click "search". The search box expands to display a convenient list of search hits along with headings to contextualize them.
