Ted,

I agree entirely. I was wondering if there was some hidden logic of which I
was unaware that caused sites to persist in such nonsense. I made a little
"end user information" database 10 years ago where I searched multiple
indexes (and was challenged for it), so I was gratified to see
Amazon finally combine Title, Index, Author... as you mention, putting the
burden on the tireless, 2 Gigahertz, 60GB link in the chain.

Thanks, Jack
