Subject Re: How to index and query "C#" as whole term?
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 15:28:04 GMT
I don't think you'd want to use the string type here. String type is 
almost never appropriate for a field you want to actually search on (it 
is appropriate for fields to facet on).

But you may want to use Text type with different analyzers selected.  
You probably want Text type so the value is still split into different 
tokens on word boundaries; you just don't want an analyzer set that 
removes punctuation.
