In addition to the built-in Stata help commands and the already-fine
collection of Stata-related search plug-ins available for Firefox, there is
now a Stata Help plugin to search the web help files (e.g.
http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?regress ) directly.  Regrettably, it uses a
somewhat kludgy mechanism to overcome the combined effect of the Stata
website's non-standard CGI lookup and the search plugin's somewhat
inflexible syntax.  If someone can suggest a better way I'd be most
grateful.
At any rate, I've been using it for a week or two now and it seems to work
well, kludge or no.  
It just showed up in the mozdev repository, so if anyone finds it useful you
can install it here:

submitform=Search

Comments/criticism welcome.

Best,
Ari
