Description Pamela Trounstine 2007-11-23 23:22:47 UTC
If I search "music of" any any country, but reliably Argentina, Uruguay, and a few other latin
american countries, there are entries- but the Wiki search say there are not.  Do the same
search in google and I get right to them.  Same spelling, I checked by copying and pasting
the titles how I found them even.  "Research" for it under WikiMedia drop down in the middle
of the page it comes up, too.  Not sure why these can't be found the first time.

This is probably due to the failure to make an exact case match. The search results display on currently gives *FAR FAR FAR* too much prominence to not making an exact match, and depending on your window size you may need to *scroll down* to see the search results, where you will find the matching title as the first result.

That's pretty lame; English Wikipedia should fix the message.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-03-19 00:30:37 UTC
Seems to behave reasonably well currently; giant message only shows up when no results whatsoever are found.
