The search operates like finding a specific piece within a larger body of text, where a match occurs if the sought term matches a complete word or if it's part of another word. Therefore, it's advisable to seek singular forms of words, as searching for "tool" will encompass "tools", but the reverse isn't true. Additionally, explore alternative spellings, such as "furniture maker" written as one word, two words, or hyphenated.

These articles have been generated over the last 25 years and adjusted to be compatible with all devices for readability. Instead of individually editing thousands of files, we utilized code to modernize the formatting. The conversion process isn't flawless, and occasional display issues may arise. If you encounter any, please leave a comment on the article, and we'll manually review and address them as necessary.

In the meantime, we're transferring these articles to a new platform that facilitates enhanced search capabilities and categorization. This necessitates manual editing and transferring of each article to the new platform, making it a continuous endeavor.
