LookUP Widget

I've mentioned my astronomy name lookup service before. It builds on the excellent services of Simbad, NED, SkyBot, Wikisky et al.

This evening I hacked together a widget for LookUP. It is now possible to include a search box on your own website and for a user to get results without leaving your site. This is code I hacked together so it may not work (I only tested it in Firefox 3.0.11 on linux). In that respect I have a request dear reader. If you don't mind playing with 'alpha' code, it would be great if you could give it a try and let me know what works and what doesn't. If you can write improvements for it, even better!
