(see Screenshots for what it looks like)
The API uses AJAX, using the YAHOO 2.2.0 UI framework (tweaked for Dom Servers) to query the NAB based on the characters typed by the user. It then returns the selected NAME and other NAB information about the selected person to the form and updates the required NAMES field. It can be tailored to update other fields with the additional material returned from the NAB.
The API does NOT require any changes to be made to the NAB
