I guess I can't think of any sites that couldn't be searched by either a 
search box, or a JAWS search; presumably to use Google to search within a 
site, you have to have some knowledge of what the site is about in the first 
place. Do you have such a site in mind where Google would assist in the 
suggested way? -

| Hi Andy,
|
| What don't you understand?  Some sites don't have a search facility;
| additionally might be pretty hard/slow to use/find what you want.  So you
| can try and make google search that site for you (it doesn't always work).
| To do that you'd do:
|
| site:www.somesite.com useful stuff
| in the google search box.
|
| Which would search www.somesite.com for useful stuf...
|
| Hope that explains,
| Catherine
