Hmm. I don't have any collections with Word documents; they are all image only collections with Dublin Core metadata. I would assume the search engine would work the same no matter what text it was searching. If you have Word documents in your collection, try searching "as phrase" and see if it works. Any of the Greenstone *experts* want to say anything? ;)

So far the Greenstone search features have met our needs just fine.

I just want to confirm something. If the document was a Word
Document, and the phrase "about 1895" was in the actual Word Document
and not in the dc.Description, would the search on "about 1895" pull
up this word document?

What can you tell me about the search engine in general? Does it do
ranking? How do you like the user interface for the searching? Did
it meet your needs?

Thanks,
Belinda
