Could someone explain how help search scope in an Infocenter is meant to
work? This is the behavior I see:

1. When the infocenter is displayed, I click the Search Scope: link.
2. I define a search scope.
3. When I perform the search, Eclipse seems to ignore the scope settings,
and when I return to the Search Scope, I find that the scope I defined was
not saved.

If I delete cookies from my browser, and repeat the above, the same thing
happens, BUT, the Search Scope: link changes to Advanced Search. Clicking
on Advanced Search displays a dialog that allows me to restrict the scope
of the search.

So, is this behavior normal? Is the Search Scope: link meant to work in an
Infocenter? If not, is there a way to make the Advanced Search link
displayed by default? Perhaps my browser or more likely the Infocenter is
configured incorrectly, but I'm finding this confusing. Thanks in advance,
