RE: <swishdecription> returning blank?

Ok I just tried swapping StoreDescription HTML2 <tbody> 2000, with the extra line PropertyNames tbody added also, and I'm still getting the blanks where swishdescription should be. My config file now looks like:
---Config file---
IndexFile c:\swish-e\ForumVirtualIndex.index
IndexDir C:/Inetpub/VirtualRoot/planetpdfforumarchive
IndexOnly .asp
StoreDescription HTML2 <tbody> 2000
FileRules filename is forum6\.asp
FileRules filename is forum52\.asp
FileRules filename is forum2\.asp
FileRules filename is forum3\.asp
FileRules filename is forum5\.asp
FileRules filename is forum34\.asp
FileRules filename is forum9\.asp
FileRules filename is forum68\.asp
FileRules filename is forum18\.asp
FileRules filename is forum73\.asp
FileRules filename is forum4\.asp
FileRules filename is forum7\.asp
FileRules filename is forum12\.asp
FileRules filename is attachlist\.asp
IndexReport 3
PropertyNames tbody
ReplaceRules Replace "C:/Inetpub/VirtualRoot/planetpdfforumarchive" ""
---end file---

--excerpt of results----
(of the format <swishrank>|<swishtitle>|<swishdocpath>|<swishlastmodified>|<swishdescription>)

# SWISH format: 2.4.2 # Search words: eat # Removed stopwords: # Number of hits: 30 # Search time: 0.110 seconds # Run time: 0.125 seconds

Note the blanks after the <swishlastmodified>| section. :(

All my other indexes return it. Mind you they use either the or to create the indexes. Anyway, details follow:

I believe that the StoreDescription <tag> syntax is for the tag in the 
source you want to include from, not for the swish property name. Is 
there a tag called 'swishdescription' in your source files? otherwise, 
you likely want <body> instead.
