in reply to new super search

If you're content with defining the word on as the four characters space-oh-en-space, you can search for it using something like:
; on ;
(semicolons included) Then set the default string separator to a semicolon. Thats how I've used it anyway.

      Seems to work for me... Do you see this text on the results page?
      where any text contains " on "
      written by any of merlyn
      I checked the first ten results and they all contained the word on. What results did you get that matched "question" or "one"?


        No, I can't get it to do that. I set "-on-" and typed "-" in the box next to "as spaces", and tried both settings for the radio button (which I still don't exactly understand, even though tye referenced a somewhat useless node about it).
