I have a consulting client who is shipping around Boolean queries. 
The documents are not XML, but they are using XML for data transfer 
between the search form and the back-end search engine, and in the 
results listings.  We would like to replace their proprietary query 
language (it looks like AltaVista's + and - system) with XML markup, 
because it seems cleaner and could be parsed with the rest of the 

I have read all 66 position papers at the QL '98 site 
<http://www.w3.org/TandS/QL/QL98/pp.html> and think that the proposed 
languages, such as XQL or XML-Query, are overkill for our needs.   Do 
we have to go the whole query route or is there something lightweight 
that might handle it for us?
