Subject Re: Highlighting for non-stored fields
Date Sun, 31 Oct 2010 01:05:59 GMT
Also, consider what you'd be reconstructing from if you could try it. The
indexed data has been transformed by, say, stemming, casing, etc. So
any attempt to reconstruct the fields for highlighting would necessarily
show the transformed version, which would not be pleasing. Plus you could
have synonyms in there...

I've used a variant on Pradeep's suggestion with good results...
