Thanks Kevin.  I'll play around with the new version.

I tried it out a few times on your site, and it doesn't seem to be  
doing exactly what I'm looking for.

I searched for the phrase:
"area tag produces"

(which is a phrase that is found on the Area tag page).  It found the  
Area tag page as the first result, but it also returned two other  
pages.  Those pages had all the words (or variations of the words),  
but not the exact phrase.

I'll install the Swish2 module and see if I can figure what's going  
on.  Thanks again for your help.
