Actually the Softcopy CD is LESS searchable than the web.

This is the same package IBM shipped with V4R4. The new CD only includes a
few missing books at V4R4 pressing time. The bookreader exists at the
world's worst Windows program. I remain convinced that it's a ten-year-old
Junior Achievement project that IBM pirated! And, at least InfoCenter is
there on CD. Alas, the CD is no more searchable than the Web info center.
IBM doesn't have a clue on this stuff--and even more sadly, they don't even
have a clue they don't have a clue. They think the current stuff is _great_!
