Marshall, the keywords in the XML index mean the same thing they
have always meant in the RFC Editor's search engine, and they "mean"
the same thing that keywords in any publication mean.  We welcome
input on how to improve our choice of keywords to make searching
more useful.

  *>     <kw>Border,gateway,protocol,Open,shortest,path,first,routing</kw>
  *> or
  *>     <kw>[--------|h]</kw>

(That "means" we made a mistake.  This internal encoding should not
have been included in the XML. We will fix it ASAP! Thanks for
pointing it out.)
