In order to enable easier checking of Benchmarks Online against the print (aka 1993) version, I implemented a switch that allows you to specify the 1993 version as the default tab displayed. To enable to switch you have to visit the utility with the querystring bmtabver=1993 appended. So the following URL would enable the switch:
To disable the switch change the value from 1993 to 2007 (or delete the “bmtabver” cookie from your browser).
This switch is not publicly noted on the site (though visitors to this entry would obviously know of its existence).
The Benchmarks Online Text (Verbiage) Utility has been partially rewritten to better facilitate maintenance of the new BOL website content.

- Search form has been added above list of existing BOL text.
- Search and navigation of existing BOL text is asynchronously generated.
- The initial display is no longer the ‘Enter New’ interface. Click on the ‘Enter New’ link to display the interface. The initial display is now the list of existing BOL text data along with search form.
- ‘Enter New’ form has been updated to support Quote classified content (minor oversight in previous version).
Finding existing BOL text is now much easier and faster!
The search upgrades and bug fix have been implemented and uploaded to the development and production servers.
Search filtering by current bm, old bm, prose has been corrected.
Fulltext viewing is now available for each search result (‘fulltext’ link following the truncated text), or all search results (‘Output Format’ menu option).
A new results formating option currently labeled ‘Custom1′ is in the Output Format’ menu which displays the results in table format similar to old BOL search result output.
