search results display

Hi
I'm working on a content site's search results page. Are there any "best
practices" regarding Search Results display?
I've read Luke W's Innovations... <http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?171>
Is there anything anyone else has used?
Cheers

searching within browse

Hello all,
I have a question about how to allow to display search results within
a browse categories page.

For example, an application offers both Search and Browse
capabilities. Both designed with pretty standard UI (eg. google search
and dmoz.org browse)

The Browse lists all parent categories and their children.Users can
drill down thru the category trees to view results.

Let's say a user clicks through to a secondary level category and
decides to search within that category.

At this point, would we show these results as being under Search or
under Browse?

Thank you,
Valerie

To sort or not to sort

I'm reviewing designs for a search feature. My question is regarding the
search results...the design has the results coming back in a table/grid
format. Columns contain Title/Description, Subtype/Date, and File Type.

I initially was reviewing the wireframes for consistency w/ the
application this feature will be integrated with, and not necessarily at
the context of use of this feature. I came back w/ a recommendation to
include sortability on the results table.
