Following the convention chosen by the Maori Language Commission this website uses a macronised font, Unicode (UTF-8) to indicate long vowels in Māori.
(UTF-8) macrons create true macrons with out the need for Māori

Using the search engine
At its simplest, a query can be just a word
or a phrase. But with the tips on this page, you can expand
the focus of your query to give you more complete results.
These tips will get you started with basic query language
and acquaint you with the full power of Microsoft Index
Look for words with the same prefix. For
example, in your query form type key*
to find key, keying, keyhole,
keyboard, and so on.
Search for all forms of a word. For
example, in the form type sink** to
find sink, sinking, sank, and
Search with the keyword NEAR, rather
than AND, for words close to each
other. For example, both of these queries, system
and manager and system near manager,
look for the words system and manager
on the same page. But with NEAR, the
returned pages are ranked in order of proximity: The
closer together the words are, the higher the rank of
Refine your queries with the AND
NOT keywords to exclude certain text from your
search. For example, if you want to find all instances
of surfing but not the Net, write the
NOT the Net
- Add the OR keyword to find all
instances of either one word or another, for example:
This query finds all pages that mention Abbott or
Costello or both.
Abbott OR Costello
Put quotation marks around keywords if
you want Index Server to take them literally. For
instance, if you type the following query:
Index Server will literally look for the complete phrase
system near manager. But if you type the same
query without the quotation marks:
system near manager
Index Server searches all documents for the words system
Use Free Text Queries if you want to enter queries using natural language. Index Server will examine your query, extract nouns and noun phrases and construct a query for you. With free text queries you can enter any text you want, from a proper question, to a string of words and phrases, without worrying about the query language. For example, if you type in the following query:
"How do I use the Index Server administration snap-in?"
Index Server will create a query for you automatically and begin the search. Note that when you're using free text queries, the regular query language features are disabled and keywords such as
AND, OR, and NEAR are interpreted as normal words.
