%0A will get indexed as 0A.  

It's not really sentence based.  The highlighting code finds a word or
phrase, then flags the previous and next five words.  It stops highlighting
after finding six hits.  The "..." are added if words are skipped between
the ten snippets.

What you are saying is you find a hit, then flag backwards to the beginning
of the sentence, and flag forward to the end of the sentence, then display
that entire sentence, right?  I think that might end up with long snippets.
 Also phrases can match across sentences.

I can't remember how the highlight code works (it varies in the different
highlighting modules).  One maintains a FIFO stack that always contains
enough words to show the context only.  Another splits the entire document
into an array.

I wonder if this is more tweaking than is needed for most users.  I'd think
in general seeing a word/phrase with five or so words on each side will
show the context.
