Subject strategy for abbreviations?
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2007 19:57:18 GMT
I'm doing a search against user-generated data.  I have a listing such
as "PF Changs" (a restaurant).  It might be specified as


P.F. Changs

PF Chang's

P. F. Changs

And etc...


And my search might be any of those too.  Assuming I'm using "AND"
matches by default (which I am), is there a common mechanism for dealing
with this problem?  Snowball seems to get somewhat confused by it,
turning "P.F. Chang's" into PF Changs and then failing because it's
matching against "P F Changs"
