This is a good idea. My server is slow to give search results so I was
considering creating a method for indexing my site, I would then be
able to [use AJAX to] dynamically give search results (like this:
http://www.google.com/webhp?complete=1&hl=en). I was waiting for the
DokuWIki plugin functionality though. ;-)

Gmail uses an AJAX type spellchecker which is very good. It is not
dynamic, it only does the spellcheck upon request, but then offers
inline suggestions. I have a lot of gmail invites if you would like to
see how they do it.
