Dear Anna,

I have tested this in MGPP and it seems to work
well for when searching for individual words without punctuation. But :
* if I use the phrase search facility (phrase in
quotes), the phrase is not highlighted in the pdf
file (the quotes are in the Acrobat search box which may be confusing)
* if I search for a word with elided article in
French (e.g. l'exhaustivité), the word
"exhaustivité" is found in the html version of
the document but not in the original pdf (whether
I search on "l'exhausivité" or "exhaustivité").

Is there a fix for these problems? Best regards, John
