So you're famous now!  Congratulation!

Do you know, by any chance, how I can get the Mozilla search feature to
work with SUSv4?

For some reason, all my usual methods used with the SUSv3 docs don't
work with SUSv4.

http://www.opengroup.org/cgi-bin/kman2?sourceid=Mozilla-search&value=read
works.

http://www.opengroup.org/cgi-bin/kman3?sourceid=Mozilla-search&value=read
asks for username and password instead.

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/nfindex.html
works.

http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/nfindex.html
asks for username and password after pressing the search button.

Are this interfaces just not opened to the public yet, or will these
stay closed?  That would be a real pity.
