why won't the search term "CO2" work in advanced search?

    Many search engines require MORE than 3 characters for searches.

    I think this site conforms to that standard.

    Think about a search on the word 'the'. The result set would be quite large and difficult to review :)

    It also requires more time for the actual database calls and could time out the user session....

    The larger the search pattern, the LESS results usually...

    There will be some small changes soon. That will also make searches like CO2, BBA, GSA etc. possible. Work in progress ;)

    I find this to be the most effective way to search this and most forums.
