I need to modify that somewhat.  Some of the words containing special 
characters are found.  I just hadn't discovered them before I sent the 
first email.  This is an example of one of them that failed.  Other 
words with that same special character were found.  I turned stemming 
off when indexing. (scriptindex --stemmer=none)  I can't imagine Omega 
stemming that word, but maybe.
