Description

It would be nice if the keywords file was made available to the public through some interface. At the moment users (like Stuart) are having to parse HTML. Stuart Mumford says that this :

https://sdac.virtualsolar.org/cgi/show_details?keyword=PHYSOBS

Is similar to what he wants.

This may lead to the keywords being in a database rather than a file. It's similar to the discussion we had a while ago about if the registry should go into a mongoDB rather than being a set of xml files. Keyword HTML would then be generated on the fly from a DB.

At the moment we're pretty heavily committed but this is a nice idea from Stuart that I wanted to capture - Niles.

Emailed Stuart and asked him how he saw this being used.
