to be or not to be May 13, 2003

Try to search that famous Shakesperean quote: to be or not to be



You\'ll never find it! But try it using the following:: \"+to +be +or +not +to +be\" . You\'ll have Shakespeare at your hands.



Regards,



Clarisa

Common sense May 14, 2003

Hi Marijke,



In my opinion, the \'hacks\' on that website are not \'hacks\' but just plain common sense. I would certainly not spend money on a book with more of the same.

Clarissa,



It\'s much quicker if you just put it in quotes:

\"to be or not to be\"
