Controlling highlighted search terms found in records

Incident code 16384-41283 reported 7/11/2008
At first, we were happy to see all the search term highlighting back in the new Voyager 7.0 interface. But closer inspection of its behavior is puzzling us. From the searchBasic page, a search on TKEY for “decis” (omit quotes) returns 56 records. But entering “decid” results in zero hits. What is the difference? Only when we put a ? after “decid?” are we able to get the truncated words (and they aren’t highlighted). What is the difference?? We are finding this to be the case using the keyword with and and relevance search as well on the basic search page. Thanks. Toni
