This seems to replace the current single line search with a multi-line
form with multiple <br> and inline style elements. I don't personally
see this as an improvement to the search form; perhaps there's something
I'm missing, though.

[If a multi-line approach is actually what is wanted, that should
probably be implemented using CSS rather than <br> with an appropriate
submit/reset style so that future changes can be limited to the CSS file
rather than individual code changes to the entire website.]

Yes, that's what I was talking about; didn't realize that wasn't what
you were referring to.

"Ban cryptography! Yes. Let's also ban pencils, pens and paper, since
criminals can use them to draw plans of the joint they are casing or
even, god forbid, create one time pads to pass uncrackable codes to
each other. Ban open spaces since criminals could use them to converse
with each other out of earshot of the police. Let's ban flags since
they could be used to pass secret messages in semaphore. In fact let's
just ban all forms of verbal and non-verbal communication -- let's see
those criminals make plans now!"
