New Coordination Search form for CrystalWeb

New CrystalWeb Search Form 

A new coordination search form is now available. It searches the ICSD
and CrystMet databases and allows searching on a specific central atom
type and coordination number.

This search depends upon the calculated bonding for a structure, and
uses the same criteria as the structure display. 

We expect to extend the search capability such that the nature of
attached atoms can also be specified.

Similar search facilities are already available for the Cambridge
Structural Database (CSD) within the ConQuest system. However, we will
add coordination searching for the CSD within CrystalWeb quite soon.
We will also add the coordination search option to the "comprehensive"
search form.
