That's just silly. Anybody using the darn thing will type in the entire
word if "admin" doesn't work. And if they can't, then perhaps they
shouldn't be driving.<<

I will not, I will skip to related words. I think that is a waste of my time and a bit of archaic thinking. If I am looking for a specific term, I may only type a portion of it. I expect a search engine to find a string of characters, not whole words. This also helps to find words that are misspelled. If I wanted it to find whole words, I'd select "Find whole words only" that is included in most "Find" dialogs. It is my assumption (meaning I must accept the consequences of being wrong) that most "Find"
I'll go ahead and keep driving.
I agree that jargon should be cross-referenced in an index, but limited in use in a technical document (depending upon the audience).
