Right, but doesn't everything make it's way to swishdefault? That's what I thought

  Swish also, by default, indexes content of meta tags. So 'swish-e -w foo' will
  find "foo" in the body, the title, or any meta tags

That shows this line for the word "perl"

    Adding:[1:title(19)]   'perl'   Pos:181  Stuct:0x1 ( FILE )

And nothing else. I know it's getting indexed under "title", but shouldn't it
also be under "swishdefault"?
