Plugin Request for MondoUrania.com

Urania was a great sci-fi book collection in Italy.

MondoUrania.com is the ONLY site that index this collection, usually only place where to find these books covers and comments.

Will someone please try to write a plugin for this site?

The URL query they use is google custom search, i.e. for searching "la città proibita"
Code:
http://www.google.com/custom?as_sitesearch=mondourania.com&hl=it&q=la+città+proibita&cmdcerca=Cerca
It will take to http://www.mondourania.com/urania/u1.../urania122.htm where you can find

Book Cover:
Code:
<TD vAlign=top align=middle width=454 height=100 rowSpan=5><img src="u122.jpg" width="456" height="672" border="1"></TD>
Book Title:
Code:
<DIV align=center><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=4><B>LA CITTA' PROIBITA</B></FONT></DIV>
Author:
Code:
<P><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size="3">LEIGH BRACKETT</font></P>
Comments:
Code:
<P><FONT face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=1><font size="2">Blah blah blah</font></FONT></P>
Serie #:
Code:
<DIV align=center><FONT size=4><B><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">122</font></B></FONT></DIV>
Is someone please able to write a plugin for that site?

Thanks a lot!

Hey,

I will give it a try, but as you know i am not italian, nore a sf-fan, and i do program just for fun . I like to puzzle and learn myself the language on the fly.

I have some questions:
- the books don not have an isbn-number - it is not mentioned at the MonodUrania site?

- is there 1 serie, or are there more ( because i noticed same titles/(different?) authors in different serie p.e. LA SIGNORA DEGLI SCARAFAGGI - Thomas Disch - serie blu and LA SIGNORA DEGLI SCARAFAGGI by thomas m disch -serie Urania). Or is Urania the only serie?
If so the search can be just title based( presuming no double title in a serie).
and the authorsname is not required for searching.

- for me the extra characters á à etc give me some headache, but problems are there to be fixed.
- The site also has some problems with it, la città is mentioned as citta`
This complicates the search for the right title and url.
