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

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")
