I confirm these findings.  HPR finds only 2 forms on the page:  the 
standard search form, and the Magazines combo containing 5 titles.
It is possible that the page may be inadvertently utilizing the 'hidden' 
or the 'visibility' attributes that may be hiding content to some of the 
more advanced access tools.
I suggest that Bookshare staff also add HPR to system test.  The HPR trial 
can be downloaded from

Well sir, i have perused the page and for me there's only the magazines
box--plus the usual search box for books of course.  so, for whatever
reason, there's our first bug, or mine anyway.
