Totally forgot that I specified a favicon but didn't put one in the 
images directory!

Probably because I removed the form generation from the script. The line 
can probably be removed.

That's where the searh results come. The default is to not show search 
results, but when people go to search.lfs.org, I want to show them 
search.html anyways (linked as index.html).

search.html is in www/test. I'm adjusting the stylesheet to format the 
search results.

Great! I'll proceed with those untill you've restored write permissions 
for me on the swish templates :)
