Thanks Bob. But especially, thanks Ken.

This is really cool !  In fact, I was inspired by this to modify the 
stack to fix my own favourite annoyance in the docs.

I find it intensely irritating that when you try to filter the 
dictionary on, say, "word" you get not only the 5 or 6 matches that you 
wanted, but you also get another 400 or so matches like
# keyword
$ keyword
.....
abbr keyword
etc.

But being naturally cautions, and MUCH less experienced than Ken, I'd 
rather not release it immediately, without some brave souls downloading 
it and either testing it and/or looking it over.

Brave souls (only) can find it at    www.tweedly.net/RunRev/FixDocs2.rev
or very   in msg box, type
     go stack url "http://www.tweedly.net/RunRev/FixDocs2.rev"

Note - even after this change ("fix") you can still find, for instance, 
all the keywords by using a filter string which starts with the space 
character, as in  " keyword")  (i.e. "(space)keyword")
