Hi again, Geoff:

For example, try going to my site at and using
the search box on the left nav. bar.

Type in "ngksparkplug" and you'll get a small list of hits. The hits
contain URLs to NGK's website, which does, upon 2nd inspection, contain the
search term. But the first result turned up ALSO contains the word "plugs"
or "plug" right above where "ngksparkplug" is written. Yet a search for
simply "plug" or "plugs" yields NO results. How very strange!

Please note that the resulting page that you click on (not the search
result page but the document it found) appears to be HTML but is actually
generated from a plain text e-mail list digest.

Please let me know if what I explained was clear.
