List of issues:
* technology - remove use of xhtml-based layout in favor of purely programmatic component construction. without this fix, the search bar can only be used on JSF pages.
* absolute positioning - some components that make up the SearchBar use absolute positioning. these must be replaced by solutions that work more consistently with respect to scrollbars/overflow in various browsers
* static width - this should be improved by supporting a flexible-width SearchBar. care must be taken to ensure that sub-components of the SearchBar flow and reposition themselves naturally during the flex.
