How much nesting is ok?  Should

swish-e -w "html=Ray" work, too?

I'm somewhat concerned about this change in MetaNames.  First, do I
understand correctly now that:

<META NAME="foo" CONTENT="bar">

Is now the same as



And searching for -w "foo=word" would find word in either place if a
document had both a <META> named FOO and a <FOO> tag?

Will <FOO> be found anywhere in the document, or just within <BODY> tags?

What happens if there's an open <FOO> and no </FOO> found?

What happens if:
   some text
         more text
   something else

What happens if both FOO and BAR are Metanames and:


Will the word "inside" be found in both FOO and BAR?

What if <BAR> is not a Metaname.  Will "inside" be included in FOO.

I might like to have a setting for indexing to say STRICT_METANAMES to mean
that only <META> tags would be indexed, in case there might be a conflict
with a <META> tag and an XML tag.
