Question: indexing of html pages containing tabular numeric data

From: Bruce Rodney <brodney(at)>

I've just started with swish-e 2.0.5, compiled and running under Solaris 8
with initial quick success. It's great! But I can't figure out how to
achieve optimal indexing for the following scenario:

The HTML files contain header info plus tables of floating point data, e.g.
a coordinate such as 1532727.45. The tables contain 100's of rows of this
rather tedious data which I wish to EXCLUDE from the index. My initial
approach was to use BeginCharacters to only index words starting with [a-z].
Problem is: there may be valid keywords in the header info above the table
with are in fact integers, e.g. a unique object identifier such as
102320000. So I really want to let integers be indexed, but not floats.

I've scoured the documentation and the header files and hope I've not missed
something obvious... any help much appreciated.
