No front page news here, but still worth pointing out...

Search for 'Vitamin B12' oddly gave these results :-

'B vitamin' gets 'Relevance: 100.0%'

While (way down the page) 'Vitamin B12' gets 'Relevance: 45.6%'!

Maybe the indexers need to get some more B12 in their diet! ;)



PS What's with the bank-like security here? Bit of a pain to put 
it mildly - authorised cookies, yet still had to tediously re-
enter my log-in half a dozen times!

That's just the way the search works...

(Don't check the checkbox for requiring IP match when you log in; AOL's proxies
break that.)
