Hi Diego

I am supposed to be looking into this, but have been sidetracked on
trying to get the release out.
I have done some very basic investigation into what google does and
doesn't index. It seems to index greenstone collections ok. But
sometimes the assoc files get indexed, sometimes the greenstone versions
get indexed.
I have wondered (but haven't tested) whether if you have two links to a
document, one to the greenstone version, one to the word (or other)
version, that maybe google only indexes the first one?

Anyway, will hopefully get back to looking at this at some stage.

Cheers,
Katherine
