The other day someone wanted to know what the German abbreviation HS
stands for. It turns out that the question had been answered before
but the translation could not be retrieved because the search engine
will not accept queries with fewer than three letters. There are a lot of two-letter abbreviations that have been entered in the glossary and can't be found. Is there any way to program the search engine to accept two-letter abbreviations?

I second your request Kim Jul 4, 2003

I've seen you asking for that in several places. It's not urgent but it would be useful.

So, as Ralf says
If it can be implemented without tying up resources
