The ASP.NET search control allows portions of a query to be surrounded with quotes causing the contained keywords to be treated as an exact phrase, search results will contain the words in the phrase in precise order.
The search result summary is an extract of the original text showing as many of the search keywords as possible. Summary can include multiple extracts from various parts of the document when searched words are not close enough.
Word variations are (optionally) included in the search - in the example above the search term "downwards" yielded results with the same stem "downward" which were ranked lower (optional through an adjustable factor). Similarly a search for "downward" would yield results with "downwards", etc.
