Re: How does the Search engine for this list work?

Hey Bill,

Thanks for the reply.  Second question.  How does the parsing engine work.
May I simply write a program that converts, for example:

<!-- received="Sun Apr 14 16:08:35 2002 PDT" -->

into a html meta name tag without worry of the context.  So must the meta
name tag appear in the header?  Or will swish-e recognize the meta tag even
if it is outside the header?

Also, is there some way to "read" the index to see if the metatags have been
indexed properly?

Thanks!

Paul Borghese
