The spec says the English isindex prompt should be "This is a searchable index.
Insert your search keywords here: (input field)", which is the string used by
Safari. Please make it "This is a searchable index. Enter search keywords:
(input field)" instead. That's the only string that two of the five browsers
have converged on. It's also a nicer UI string, since it doesn't uselessly use
the word "here".

Since the string is exposed in the DOM, variability in the en-US locale is
trouble with test cases.
