Well, that's confusing.  Swish uses the HTML parser by default -- when the
type for the document is not set.  IndexContents sets the type, but the
documents start out with not type assigned.  I guess StoreDescription then
doesn't work since the document is not HTML (it's default).  If that makes
any sense at all...

Maybe documents should default to HTML (rather than defaulting to the HTML
