Thanks for the clarification. I had assumed that to be the case, but 
assumptions have a tendency to come back and bite me in inappropriate 
places. By pointing that out, you've probably saved me from beating my 
head against the wall in the near future : -).

The big stumbling block I have at the moment is understanding whether 
Terms can be used to find something like a phrase query, proximity 
query, or boolean query. I think the answer is no, two different 
concepts. But I also tend to think that the wheel has already been 
invented to find how many times a phrase (i.e. "Lucene in Action") 
appears in a document. Before I go digging through the source code, and 
possibly creating some rather embarrassing hack(s), I thought I would 
check to see if there is a 'right' way to go about this.

Alternatively, any suggestions on what to google, or where to look to 
educate myself would be welcome as well.
