hi,

i installed v2.40a, MG searching worked strange
searching "digital library" OR "electronic library" kept to be postprocessed as conjunction

I may be wrong but check it before you session start (it would be silly)

ideas : your students could try searching for multilingual terms with greenstone - in texts (not in standardized fields) at least english, german, french and without stemmer (there is no for french)

cut&paste searching in russian collections
