We plan to make a series of articles searchable on the web. Our plan is to
mark these up using Text Encoding Initiative.

Which software is best for the marking up process? The files will be in
plain text and the operating system will be Windows 2000.

Also, when I have marked up the articles, what is the next step in making
these searchable on the web? Is there an application that will index the
elements on the web server? Should I be seeking an 'XML aware search
engine'. We use Microsoft IIS.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.
