Re: Issue with indexing

OK, I did this and found 'kiddush' IS being indexed, but not coming up when 
I search for it.

Here are the lines around the word getting idexed:
     Adding:[1:summary(13)]   'ritual'   Pos:601  Stuct:0x89 ( META BODY FILE )
     Adding:[1:summary(13)]   'kiddush'   Pos:602  Stuct:0xC9 ( EM META 
     Adding:[1:summary(13)]   'sanctification'   Pos:603  Stuct:0xC9 ( EM 

So the problem appears to be in the search end.
