This message does not just come up when the word isn't in the document. As
it says, it might not be in the *stored* excerpt, limited to
max_head_length characters.

Besides META keywords and descriptions, ht://Dig indexes the text of links
leading to documents. Usually this is a very accurate description of the
document, but it is not always. If you wish to disable this behavior, set:

description_factor: 0

Then rebuild from scratch.

There are also a number of "fuzzy" matching algorithms. These can produce
varying results. I usually stick to the "synonyms" and "endings" fuzzies,
though these can stil produce matches that are not exact.
