Okiemockbird Needed? Song history FAQ ? (17) RE: Needed? Song history FAQ ? 04 Jan 00

Ah, I thought you were proposing a serial number itentification system for ALL the lyrics. I was aware of the keyword mechanim, but not of the DT numbers, so thanks for the tip off! In exploring the search mechanism I also found the capability the anonymous poster was referring to, so I thank that individual also.

How come, when I power-search under "#200" I get a link to a file containing "Wraggle-taggle gypsies" with the notation "Child #200", but when I search under "W" I get a file which doesn't identify the lyric as a version of Child #200?

Does the thread-creation mechanism have a prefix for "Info add:" or "Sleevenote:" for mutcatters use when posting new or corrected history or cross-reference information about a lyric in the DT? (I haven't seen one, but maybe I've missed it, or misinterpreted one.)
