      Often you will use a small list of terms with KeywordIndexes.
      In this case you may want to use the 'uniqueValuesFor' method to
      create a custom search form. For example here's a snippet of a
      Page Template that will create a multiple select box for all the
      values in the 'keywords' index::

        <select name="keywords:list" multiple>
            tal:repeat="item python:here.uniqueValuesFor('keywords')"
              opt value goes here

         please refer to Products/PluginIndexes/README.txt to change the operator! the default is OR, not AND.

         <input type="hidden" name="keywords.operator:record" value="and">
         and change
         <select name="keywords:list" multiple>
         <select name="keywords.query:list:record" multiple>

         to get as search-result only entries containing _all_ selected keywords.

         what about if keyword is empty? eg <input name=keywords> and you leave it blank. It doesn' return anything
         instead of all. This is a problem.
