Sounds about right.  I've seen twice that improvement in indexing from 1.3
to 2.1-dev.

Without seeing your CGI script I can't guess what it's doing.  And it also
depends on what your WordCharacter and Ignore* settings are.

Sorry, Joe.  I have no idea what you are asking.  You run swish from the
command line like:

./swish-e -w foo

And it displays the results.  I don't know what you mean by "HTML query".
I'd assume you have a CGI script that's accessing swish the same way.
