Re: Indexing Multiple <title>tags

From: Peter Karman <peter(at)>

xpath will not work within swish-e, as swish-e uses SAX parser.

Your best bet is to filter your input prior to indexing and actually 
change the tag name, either change the other two titles to e.g. 'title1' 
and 'title3' or change the real title to e.g. 'titlereal' and then use 
config options to map swishtitle to 'titlereal'. The first option is 
probably easier.
