Interface Changes, Keyboard Shortcuts and the Ancient Passive Infinitive

I made a couple of small changes to the search interface, mostly by adding keyboard shortcuts:
  • When you visit the page, the cursor is automatically placed in the search box. Just start typing because there's no need to click on the search box!
  • You can press the up and down arrows to scroll through the list.
  • You can press the enter key to view a word.
I will also duplicate these changes on the English to Latin search page.

Next I coded an inflectional ending for the "ancient passive infinitive" in -ier. Lucretius is fond of using words like vocārier instead of vocarī (Allen and Greenough, New Latin Grammar, 183.4).
