In your FAQ on at 'http://www.postgresql.org/docs/faq-english.html', 
Question 4.13 refers to the ILIKE operator, which does NOT exist in 
any current versions of PostgreSQL. According to the mailing list 
archives, it is slated for inclusion in the 7.1 release - but to 
include it in the FAQ before then is misleading (I just spent an hour 
trying to get it to work!).

----- Quote from the web page -----
4.13) How do I perform regular expression searches and 
case-insensitive regular expression searches?

The ~ operator does regular expression matching, and ~* does 
case-insensitive regular expression matching. The case-insensitive 
variant of LIKE is called ILIKE.

Thanks,
Keith

PS - LOVE the software. Been using it since 95! Keep up the good work.
