Hi Andrew,

        I've just started using ht://dig, and I've noticed that
it seems to have problems with the SGML entity " ". For example,
a document containing:

                Louis A. Bloomfield

will be found by an htsearch on "bloomfield", but a document containing
only:

                Louis A. Bloomfield

won't be found. Looking at the source (SGMLentities.cc), it seems
that this should work. If you'd like to see it yourself,
you can find an example at:

        http://www98.phys.virginia.edu/Scripts/personal.asp?UID=lab3e

(you're welcome to "htdig" the whole site if you like. It's
small, and it only takes a few minutes to run "rundig" on it.)
I don't know whether this affects other SGML entities.

        I'm using htdig-3.0.8b2, running under AIX 3.25, compiled
with gcc/g++ 2.7.2. I'll append a copy of my htdig.conf file below.

        Thanks in advance for any advice.

                                        Bryan
