Improve display for browse search results with no matches

34

 

If the user enters a browse search that doesn't match any headings in the index, the system now shows the alphabetical neighborhood of the words that were entered, with the closest match highlighted. 

It may not be clear to the user why we think that entry is a match, and we want the system to display a message like "Your title would be here" in the list.

Yes! Not putting the false match in bold would also be good!

Thanks for doing the mock-up!  I meant that the false match should not be bolded as well as the message being added, but I didn't say that and it definitely pays to be explicit when working toward development.  I also like the way that you put the message outside the bullets and used some line-spacing to make it stand out a little more.
