Example: When you search inside a publication in JW Library, say, using the word “me”, what comes up are sentences with the word “me” in them. But searching for “me*” will bring up “men”, “means”, etc. So the asteroid becomes like a placeholder for any other letter(s). If you search the online library, “*me” will bring up hits like “become” or “come”


Any day now...
