Subject Re: omitNorms and very short text fields

Yes, that will work. And combined with your other question scores will always be equal even
if cinderella or chuck occur more than once in one document.

of omitNorms.

For very short text fields like personal names or titles, length normalization can give odd
results. For example, we might want these two to score the same for the query "Cinderella".

* Cinderella
* Cinderella (Diamond Edition) (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) (Widescreen)

And these two for the query "chuck":

* Chuck House
* Check E. Cheese

I think that omitNorm=true on those fields will give that behavior. Is that the right approach?
