Attribute for <ISINDEX ...>
PROMPT = "text string"

Usage Recommendation
use it, but don't rely on it

PROMPT specifies the prompt string to put before the input field. The default prompt is "This is a searchable index. Enter search keywords:", which is less than descriptive. PROMPT allows you to give your own prompt:

this code produces this
<TITLE>Idocs: ISINDEX Example Using Congresspeople</TITLE>
<ISINDEX PROMPT="Enter the name of your state: ">
<H1>Example of &lt;ISINDEX&gt;</H1>

This page uses the &lt;ISINDEX&gt; tag.  Type in the name 
of your state for a listing of your congresspeople.
