I'm on RH7 and using HTML help. In the .chm file, when we
search for the phrase "vendor minimum" (and we ARE using the
quotation marks), it retrieves topics with instances of both words
adjacent (as expected), AND topics with both words not adjacent. In
the cases where the words are adjacent, the search highlight is
showing. In the cases where it finds the words not adjacent, the
search highlight doesn't show on the individual words. So the
highlighting is working right, but the search itself isn't...
Good question...but the topics in question don't contain
However, you inspired me to take a closer look at the topics
that are displaying in the search, to see if there are any
patterns. Sure enough, there are. Here's the scoop:
A total of 5 topics display.
One itopic is legitimate--it contains the words "vendor
Two topics contain the phrase "vendor has a minimum"
Two topics contain long lists of hyperlinks to other topics,
with a carriage return between each hyperlink. In both of these
lists of hyperlinks, there are two consecutive hyperlinks in which
the first one contains the word "vendor" as its last word, and the
second one contains the word "minimum" as its first word (for
example, a hyperlink that reads "millwork window vendor" is
immediately followed by a hyperlink that reads "minimum gross
profit"--thus the words "vendor" and "minimum" are
consecutive...except that they are on separate lines of text).
