I knew there was work behind the scenes with the documentation but not
to this extent.

While reinstating some formatting on the make docset stack I
discovered than under LC 8.2 and below an enquiry to the dictionary
yields 3940 entries

In LC 9 dp9 the same enquiry yields 5646.

A quick look reveals that one aspect of this expansion is the
inclusion of synonyms.
The glossary appears to be greatly expanded too.

Brian Milby (thanks Brian!) has been working on the docs in this regard - things will change again in dp-10. He found a better way to handle synonyms and such, which doesn't require duplicating entries:


The initial version (in dp-9 or dp-8) handled synonyms by making duplicate doc entries; in dp-10 it has been changed so that searches and such use the synonym info without duplicating them.

Warmest Regards,


P.S. Also thanks to all of you who have been helping improve the dictionary with the tweaks and changes which have been continually submitted to it - the content and formatting of them is getting better all the time!
