Hi,

When Searching for 天使 Angel in Chinese, I notice words separated by punctuation(row 5 -> Ex 29:37) is part of the search result.  The 2 words stand alone has different meaning.  Hmmm you need programmers who understand Chinese.  This will result is systemic errors for many other multi-character words.

OK, I found a benchmark for you.  I did a search using Google, they understand multicharacter Chinese words and only give me hits that are angels.

We're looking into this. Thanks for the report.

It's true that the L4 indexer doesn't currently find word breaks in Chinese.  Instead, it just indexes each character. 

I added a case for this, so we should get around to it eventually...
