search a CityDesk site?

I am evaluating CD for a client's needs.

They would like to have a website on a CD-ROM.
Is it possible to make the website searchable on a CD-ROM?

If you plop a CD-ROM into your hard drive you can search it using the windows built in find tool.
Start->Find->Files or Folders.
Type the text you are looking for into the "containing text" box.

Or, create your site as a Windows HTML Help file. It has built in searching capabilities.

You'll need the HTML Help Workshop from Microsoft. It's pretty easy to generate HTML Help from CityDesk, that's how we do CityDesk's own help.
