Hi Chris,
I saw your request for a plugin and have been working on it but I'm 
pretty green when it comes to string parsing so my methods for coming up 
with a suitable way to make a gada.be url aren't working all that well. 
Right now, my design involves adding a <gadabe> tag and quickbutton to 
wordpress so that any keywords that are surrounded by that will be 
turned into a proper gada.be search link.

I saw that the IE bookmarklet calls something called searchParse.php in 
order to generate the appropriate url and was wondering if you should 
send me the appropriate code snippet to go from a keyword or phrase to url.
