Right. I've not looked at the code but the engine undoubtedly uses stemming,
pattern matching, and other  heuristics to build and update its indexes.

The demos have been taken down but the WHIRL site used to demonstrate a
query that searched for kid's games. One of the games was by a company that
was acquired by Microsoft and WHIRL detected the similarity between the old
name and the new, so it find Web pages that matched either.

William Cohen said he saw no problems with combining WHIRL with a domain
vocabaulary and /or indexing XML documents.
