    I recently found this search engine script while searching the net
    recently and desperately need help with it. The script displays search
    hippo results via xml feed and the sponsored results on the right hand
    side are from revenue pilot. The script works except there is a bug.
    The first query works fine (it displays 10 results per page) however
    when you click "next" to go to the next page it will display 15 and
    next page it will display 20 then 25 and so on. The other problem is
    that the table size of the search hippo results on the odd occasion
    will get bigger and will throw the revenue pilot results on the right
    hand side out of view. I imagine that someone with knowledge of these
    things would be able to rectify it quite easily, however this is a bit
    above my head. If somebody could help me with this it will be very
    much appreciated.

    Here is the search results file (search.php)
