hallo guenter,

I had the same strange experience, searching for <ccc> noooothing came 
up???! ...

without knowing any details about the mediawiki-code I found out, that 
anything shorter than 4 letters isn´t found by the search-engine. it 
should be possible to change that somewhere in the php-search-script of 
the mediawiki-software.

does anybody know how to change that?

greetings, frieder
