Subject Re: get wordno, lineno, pageno for term/phrase

No, you can't do this with any existing analyzers I know of. Part
of the problem here is that there's no good generic way to KNOW
what a page and line are.

Have you investigated payloads? I'm not sure that's a good fit for
this particular problem, but it might be worth investigating.
