Demonstrating Use of a Search String

We might agree that this search string looks horrible.

But if you embed it in a reference to the site 'Let me Google that for you,' in a link like this, not only does the resulting display in the browser make it obvious how the search string is to be used but it shows what the results are and the search string itself doesn't look quite so bad.

I'm indebted to economics Professor Chris Auld of the University of Victoria who mentioned this facility on a QuantEcon blog entry.
