    i'm new to htdig, but what i've seen so far, i like! here's my
problem - i indexed
a portion of my web site, and i have
"metaphone" turned
on. when i search on the search form -
for "david", the resulting page says "Search results for '(david or "

and the font is enlarged. viewing the source for the page, the html

Search results for '(david or "<devtty" or devtty" or <devttyy or

so "<devtty" is getting translated! any fix for escaping these html
types? thanks.
