This was the subject of my posting on 5 March, from which
I concluded the above was on the "to do" list.

I presume the sort of thing you folks are looking for
might be

The searches by specified DC field (and a few dc.chem extension
fields whilst we are at it). We have not yet worked out how to search the DC.identifier
field, since this contains characters (: / . etc) which need to be quoted.
Ostensibly the "..." quote is implemented but does not yet work. But
I digress, since this list is for htdig queries!!
