A landmark region that contains a collection of items and objects that, as a whole, combine to create a search facility.

The group of elements that combine together to form a search functionality can be marked with a search role. A search role is a portion within a navigation panel which is marked with a navigation role. A search role is similar to a form role.

A search region may be a mix of host language form controls, scripted controls, and hyperlinks.

User agents should treat elements with the role of search as navigational landmarks.


<div role="search">
<label for="search">Search Site</label>
<input type="text" id=”search” title="Search within Site" />
<input type="button" onclick="search()" value="search" />
