Subject Re: Offsets?

I apologize if this was the wrong list, but I had asked a similar question 
over there to no avail, so I figured it must be buried deep in the API, and 
would be better for this list :)

I was thinking either the tokens or the entire field itself (not sure if 
that is supported at all, I feel like I'm drinking from a firehose!).  In 
our case, certain documents will have certain fields attached, and will be 
returned based on search criteria.  We have specific highlighting 
requirements, and I will have to rely on the actual offsets of those 
matching fields (as opposed to using the built-in highlighting).  Ideally, 
I'd have the begin/end offset for each field that I return.

I could probably figure that out from the first and last token in the 
field.  It looks like analysis.jsp access the index directly to get the 
information it needs.  This is a possibility, but I was thinking if I could 
get SOLR to return that information in the initial JSON, then I could save 
a step and speed things up immensely.

Thanks in advance!
