Subject Prevent Lucene from returning short length text...
Date Sun, 03 Oct 2004 23:37:55 GMT
I've noticed that Lucene does a very bad job at doing search ranking 
when text has just a few words in the body.

For example if you searched for the word "World" in the following two 

"Hello World"


"The World is often a dangerous place"

The first paragraph wuold probably match.

Is there a way I can tweak lucene to return richer content?
