As there has been so much enthusiams on the list lately, perhaps  
someone can lend me a hand this time.

Here's what I've written a few weeks ago:

Basically I need the search query should give back the results in the  
following form:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'  ?>
<ul class='LSRes'>
	<li class="LSRow">
		<a href="http://www.mike-alfa-charlie.net/pmwiki/Main/HomePage">
			I like PmWiki</a>
	<li class="LSRow">
		<a href="http://www.mike-alfa-charlie.net/pmwiki/Main/HomePage">
			I love PmWiki</a>
	<li class="LSRow">
		<a href="http://www.mike-alfa-charlie.net/pmwiki/Main/HomePage">
			I adore PmWiki</a>

If you have any clue for me, please let me know. I swear to feed back  
in form of a cookbook recipe. If you need any further info, please let  
me know.

Thanks a lot
