I took advantage of DAL's secret really good buy. It includes Patrologia ... Migne ... greek volumes. Having bought it, I wanted to see what I bought (since DAL's secret buy doesn't include previews). And FL doesn't tell you what you bought.

So, I typed 'patrologia', saw the suggested choices in the drop down, indeed listing out 'patrologia' choices, and hit enter (search).

It happily substitutes my search term, and delivers the collection and nothing else. Not what I wanted. Greek only??

So, I knew the FL coders could easily be fooled. First-level guys. I searched 'Patrologiae latin' Ha. And indeed, the engine thought long and hard .... latin ... huh?? ... why not greek as best!! Syriac maybe? Further down, it finally threw in the towel, with latin. Oh, gee.

I especially like the disappearing search box ... hides FL's coding sloppiness.

Error in search one: "Patrologia" instead of "Patrologiae".

Error in search two: "Latin" instead of "Latina".
