Hi Bill,

I have some doubts about the stopwords when searching several 
index files and the stopwords of the index files do not match:

- Search string: This is the easy part. When removing stopwords 
from the search string, I think that the search string  must be parsed 
using the stopwords of each index file. If not, we can miss some 

- Stopwords display info: In order to echo the stopwords in the 
header info, may I merge all the stopwords or just echoing the 
common stop words.
Index File1: a an the
Index File 2: an of

Echo with merging: a an the of
Echo without merging: an

BTW, merge proccess use the first approach (a an the of).

I think that the second option (an) is better than the first one (a an the 

What do you think?
