Are search engines currently able to index the objects in the collections? I
would like it if people were able to find objects using Google.

Yes. The search engines won't index the main search page because it uses 
Ajax, but the thumbnails page (index2.html) doesn't use Ajax, so it gets 
indexed.

Googling "povray roadsigns" lists both the general thumbnails page and the 
detailed html page.
The same with "povray correctingfluid".

Where the object name is more commonplace it obviously gets more difficult 
to find, so with "povray envelope" I had to enter "chrisb" to bring it up 
because there were too many other hits to bring it up on the first page full 
of results.

OK, just making sure. It would be kind of pointless if people couldn't find it.

Just one more question: are the object's keywords added to the HTML file that is
used to display/describe the object?

They're not added to either the index.html page or the index2.html page, but 
if you provide an HTML file to describe an object then you can add them into 
that and it should get picked up by Internet search engines.
