Re: (correction) search precedence

Ok, so that's what I get for making my examples over simplified.

I'm seeing differences in searches when using META tags in different ways.

I'd expect these two searches return the same thing:

  swish-e -w 'title=(money not world not energy)'                 

  swish-e -w 'title=(money) not title=(world) not title=(energy)'  

The second one doesn't exclude "energy".

I have a META tag "title" that's the same as the <title> of the document in
the examples below.


-w 'title=(money not world not energy)'
# Swish-e format 2.0
..
# Search words: title = ( money not world not energy )
# Number of hits: 4
1000 ../docs/008637.htm "Follow the Money" 2471
1000 ../docs/006749.htm "Money from Ancient Times to the Present Day" 1876
1000 ../docs/005311.htm "Money Hunter" 1801
1000 ../docs/004385.htm "Money Tree Survey" 1419
.

-w 'title=(money) not title=(world) not title=(energy)'  
# Swish-e format 2.0
..
# Search words: title = ( money ) not title = ( world ) not title = ( energy )
# Number of hits: 5
