<isindex>?</isindex> (deprecated)

    The :isindex element requires server side support for indexing
documents. Visually presents a one-line text input for keyword entry.
When submitted, the query string is appended to the current URL and
the document is displayed with these keywords highlighted. Generally
if the server supports this feature it will add the iisindex elements
to documents without author intervention.
