Well that gives me something to think about.
(ah the cobwebs are clearing and I seem to remember mention of this in a Livecode 4 point something release note.
Thanks for the reminder Peter.

Was doing something similar but this still can't get round the limitation of LC's word chunk definition, at least not with elegance. 
Although word chunks appear initially to be of use in this situation, I have come to think the character chunk is considerably more versatile.
This way I have total control over word definition and am tying it down to character position rather than word chunk definition.

Yes it is a favourite of mine too. But again it is subject to my idea of a word and LC's not matching.

Being reminded of the enabling of the FTS3 and FTS4 modules in the supplied library I will indeed check it out.

Thanks again for all your help.
