One of my users searched full-text for "runtime error 91" (without the quotes).  He got back a bunch of bugs with runtime errors, but none of them referenced "91".

Is this an OR search?  If so, he does he make it an AND search?  We tried the usual ANDs and +'s but didn't get anywhere.

It's an OR search, but the results that match all three words should have a higher score and be first.

Would you consider a request to provide an AND search, and to make that the default?  I suspect that when most users type "runtime error 91" they expect to get back only articles that contain all three words...
