Roll Your Own MT Search Bookmarklet

Now that the Furl-Delicious-Frassle-CiteULike-Connotea-Bag Bookmarklet Tool (a simepl web form to help you build a one click browser bar tool for adding web sites to various collections) seems to be working-- I decided to make another tool. This one helps you create a browser bar button for quick searching of any MovableType weblog, as described December 5, 2004.

So here is the new MT Search Bookmarklet Maker:

I use this extensively to search my own blog without needed to load the main page, or to do a quick search from any other web page using highlighted words on that page (like the Google Search button).
