parsing question

From: Peter Karman <karman(at)>

I have an HTML document that contains this markup:

<tt CLASS="literal">
<span CLASS="optional">

And I would like a search for the following phrase to find that doc:

"-h [no]aggress"

But it doesn't.

I am using SWISH-E 2.2.3 with the expat parser (not libxml2).

So this got me to wondering: does text that is broken up by tags get 
indexed (or maybe, is it find-able)? A search for:


does not match either. I have other docs where the markup is like this:

<tt CLASS="LITERAL">-h [no]aggress</tt>

and those docs ARE indexed and show up in a search.

If this IS indeed the default behaviour (I have a very minimal config 
file), is there a way to fix it with a config setting? Or should I be 
stripping out "trivial" HTML markup as part of a -S filter or something?

Thanks for any suggestions.
