Not with HTML, but you can, for example, use the Google search API from JavaScript (Ajax), Flash, PHP, Java or any other server-side scripting language.

use small ajax script.. if you see Google .. its submitting the search result as query string.. use the same thing with your search term.. and get the results in the same java script object... !!! But i will not personally recommend to do it..

as in one way or another its a for of hacking... so don't do it !! i just want you to know that .. there are 'n' number of ways to do it...

also you can use Google API ... i think you need to sign up for that... and its free.

Or you can experiment with the WWW::Mechanize module in Perl and use it to submit the search item to the form (which is essentially what it is).

Since this is not an html/css related question, I am moving this to the Miscellaneous forum.
