Formatting what the user sees...

I have successfully installed swish-e version 2.4.3.
uname -a displays: FreeBSD 4.7-RELEASE-p28 FreeBSD 
4.7-RELEASE-p28 #43: Wed Jul 20 09:35:30 MDT 2005     
root@fc2:/usr/src/sys/compile/VKERN  i386

I have a working search for the website I'm indexing but am trying to 
fine tune the results displayed in the search page. Here are the problems:

1. I would like to change the wording when there are no results from "no 
results" to "No Results Were Found." I am able to successfully change 
other errstr messages, such as "Please enter a query string," but I 
can't get a change to the no results message to show up. Is this pulled 
from some other file?
I tried to change the following code, with no success:

        # Add in results-related headers
        $headers->{'parsed words'} = join ' ', $results->ParsedWords(
    ($swish->IndexNames)[0] );

        if ( ! $results->Hits ) {
            $self->errstr('no results');
        $headers->{'number of hits'} = $results->Hits;

2. Is there anyway to remove the Reverse Sort checkbox option from the 
search form? 

3. Also, I am using to format my results.  I would 
like to rename that file something like and have the 
swish.cgi find it, but I'm not sure what in the swish.cgi file to change.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I can provide more detail on any 
of my files as needed...I'm very new at this so it is confusing.
