Even on consumer PC hardware a modestly performant fulltext engine can handle typical queries on such a small collection in fractions of a second. The problem is more (beyond quantity) that information resources (XML, HTML or whatever) are not always static but dynamic. That's, above all, one of the fundamental flaws in the brute-force spider/crawl approaches followed by the major "Internet Engines" (beyond the impact on bandwidth, the half-life of data, and all the other significant shortcommings). > > Your best contribution would be to describe a business problem and tell us > how you like to solve it. Different problems, different methods, different tools. Lets turn the tables, since I'm the confused soul, can you explain a bussiness problem and tell us how you might plan to "solve it".... > > Arved > > > -- ______________________ <A HREF="whois://rs.internic.net/ecz">Edward C.
