First of all, thank you for great autosuggest jquery plugin.

1) I found one bug in your autosuggest plugin:
resultsHighlight is currently highlighting selectedItemProp, BUT it should highlight searchObjProps (comma separated list of properties to perform the search on)

2) I also have one suggestion to improve your autosuggest plugin:
My framework (JSF) do not allow submiting inputs generated by plain javascript (it supports only inputs with special IDs which corresponds to the server side objects).
So I have my own hidden input field for autosuggest results, and before submitting I take results from autossugest hidden input field and put them to my hidden input.
It would be fine if your autosuggest plugin will support one of these functionalities:

a) method for getting results from autosuggest:

b) define own hidden input field:
   $("#myAutosuggestPlaceholder").autoSuggest(someUrl, {
       resultField: $("#myOwnResultField")

personally I prefer solution b)

3) It would be fine if your plugin will support scrollable result list.

Thank you
