All,

A simple Network Monitor trace shows that a number of HTTP GET requests are
made - prior, during and subsequent to a search being executed:

Firstly, a call is made to

        http://sa.windows.com/sasearch/lclsrch.xml
        [this looks like the contents of the search box]

then a call to

        http://sa.windows.com/sasearch/balloon.xsl
        [this looks like the transform of data to something a bit more
formatted]

.. then depending upon which action you take:

        http://sa.windows.com/sasearch/lclDocs.xml

        http://sa.windows.com/sasearch/lclProg.xml
        [these both appear to be further messages for Windows dialogs]

There may be others depending on the links that are clicked with the search
"balloon". As to why they are retrieved each time, I have little idea other
than perhaps if the text changes the newer version is cached for use when
offline? (per the settings described in the previous post)

Regards,
Stuart.
