Search CPSC's entire web site (important: read the tips below)
- Search results may contain one or more of the words entered in the query box (Boolean "OR"; example: crib infant). Documents with the most matches to the query words are listed before documents with fewer matches. If a match must contain all words, use "AND" between the words (example: crib AND infant). To search for a phrase only, use quotation marks around the words (example: "infant crib").
- Searches will find documents themselves and may also find menu pages containing links to them. If you choose a menu page from your search results and wish to investigate it more, you can use the "find in page" feature of your browser to look for a search term. If you don't want menu pages in your search, they can be excluded by using a trick. For example, to find all documents with the word "halogen", put that word in the search box. To exclude menu pages with links to these documents, put the following in the search box: halogen -imagelink: banner.jpg - since just about all menu pages (including this page) have the banner graphic at the top, this will exclude them.
- You can do a wild card search using the * (asterisk) character. For example, entering halo* in the search box will find all documents containing any word beginning with those four letters.
- There is a lot more you can do to tailor your search
and there is also an advanced search capability.
