Faceted browsing is like this:  http://shopper.cnet.com/ and http:// 
www.nines.org/collex

In Collex, the "constrain further" box are the facets.  Clicking on  
them adds them to "your constraints".  The idea is to divide the  
documents in the index into distinct buckets (or sets) and show the  
counts of how many results are in each set.
