Look at this page infoplease.com/ipa/A0001450.ht ...

Double click ANY word on the page to open a new window with search results for this word.

What do you think of this? Do you think it's useful?

How is this done?

the "secret" is in the javascipt file

i.infoplease.com/js/ip.js

the click handler event wait for a "doubleclick" to open a new window with the search results inside

useful, not really "intuitive" but good

This kind of thing should be done using "ALT + Click" or "SHIFT" – definately not using double-click because some people mistakingly think double-clicking is needed.
