I'm a bit confused. Why do you say it hasn't indexed the full text of
the files? It will read in up to max_doc_size of the documents, then
store the excerpts of up to max_head_length in the database. It will
index every word it sees.

Granted, I don't think we've tried the 3.1.5 HTML parser on XHTML,
but I can't think of a problem.
