Search Stallman.org

Individual terms containing only one non-whitespace character will be silently rejected.

Normal Search

The normal search does a literal match for one or more terms. For example,

whiskey xray

will find pages with "whiskey" and/or "xray" in them. If you quote several words ("whiskey xray"), they will be searched for together as a phrase. So

uniform "kilo bravo"

will find pages with "uniform" and/or "kilo bravo" in them. The results are ranked by the number of hits, but pages which contain ALL terms are favored. So if you search for

Bob Doug

a page which contains "bob" twice and "doug" once will rank higher than a page containing "bob" a hundred times but no doug.

The political notes search ranks only by the number of terms hit, and not by the number of total hits.
