Re: List of search fields?

Not really. This is because searching should be focused on the type of thing you 
want to find. Are you looking for uids? Or files? Or terminals? etc. The search 
capability is not exhaustive or complete. Common Criteria only dictates that 
about 5 or 6 required fields should be searchable. But we allow searching on more 
than that.

That is different entirely. The field type information is used to translate the 
raw value into something more readable. This is very different than searching. 
However, the rule for escaping is as follows.

If a user can control the contents of a field's value, it must be escaped.
