Re: Exact Phrase search

I know it's not a solution to searching for words near to but not 
consecutively located, 
but %20 does allow two consecutive words to be connected to do an exact 
phrase search, at least on the version of Swish-E that I am using.
I haven't bothered to look at any documentation to see whether other 
character map codes can be used to assist in searches, 
but I would imagine that others are possible.
It might depend on the characters allowed/disallowed settings.
