Jonas - you're correct. The theme designer can place the 'searchresults' element anywhere they choose - I'd missed that. There isstill the problem, though, that if you want to put it in the maincontent element, the article list must be hidden.
Without changing code, perhaps the results list could be displayed ontop of the article list and styled to have a height of 100%. I'll trythat to see if it works cross-browser.
