Hey, what a coincidence - I was just about to write a note saying
something along the lines of "now that the speed issue has been
addressed, the biggest remaining shortfall is..." and you went and
addressed it before I finished writing the post! ;-)

It would be nice if there was some way of highlighting the matching
terms in the document; however, I can't see how you would be able to
do that. Alternatively, as each matching page is displayed with
"C-S-n", perhaps you could display at the bottom of the page the
matches on that page with a certain amount of context - (e.g. - 10
words on either side of each match). That would let the reader find
the matches more easily on that page.

- Bill
