No, I didn't google myself.  I was surprised to see my name -- but I
did google using Perrin's name as he had given talks about caching.

It's interesting how often that happens.  I search for some topic and
then I find one of my posts -- which indicates how bad my memory is
because I seem to keep asking the same questions over and over....

No, xml files don't work like html.  You might take your XML and
extract out the data you want indexed and then use <title> and <em>
type of tags to alter how terms are ranked.  Index that as HTML2.

Indexing as HTML does give you more options for effecting the rank.
