I'm running Windows 2000 with IIS.

I'm not understanding. Switch it where?

I've done that, but it's been very slow going with me understanding it. The
powers that be just want the search part of the site to work.

When I index, I run swish-e -S prog -c spider.config
In that config file, I have this:
StoreDescription HTML <body> 200000
DefaultContents HTML
IndexContents HTML2 .htm .html
IndexContents TXT .txt .conf

Which I believe I took right from the docs.

It says html2

Thank you, Bill, for all your help with this.
