Shouldn't searching for "admin" result in hits on all of those other terms?
At first I was wondering why your search was not returning adminstrator, administration, and so forth. So I wen to the RoboHelp help system and did a search on "Search" and found the answer. You can use wildcared expressions in searches in HTML Help. So a search for

would return:
admin, adminstrator, adminstration

A search for


would return:
90110, 90210, 90310

Found that in the "Advanced searching techniques" topic.

Now, the question is, how to go about bringing up this little gem in your help, because it's not really obvious. It wasn't to me at least. Didn't even know you could do that. Unless I just totally missed this. Hmmmmmmm.

Anyway, I've learned something new, so I'm happy. :-)
