Re: Question re: -s swishtitle

Hi David N.,

Are you sure about what you're saying?  When we sort by either 
swishlastmodified desc or swishrank desc the results from the two indices 
seem to get mixed properly.  Plus, when we search by swishtitle asc, we 
don't get all the results from one index and then all the results from the 
other, we get about 10 from one index, then a few from the other, then a mix.
