Hi, Each bit answered in situ

Cheers MichaelW


Hi Michael,

Can you clarify the following,

  1. how the final values be formatted and evaluated. (whether its upto 3 decimal points or some other formatting expected)

Don't care. No less than 3, please

  1. could you please provide the updated profile for the Lawrence text, since as per the discussion in help4407 there are 35 compound words and one more word total.

That was affected by a very obscure bug which only occurred when a word, beginning with or (like ordinary) appears in a compound-word, such as "ordinary-sized". Fixed.

  1. Also depending on the point 2, the normalization and the euclidean distance also get changed.

I recomputed all the profiles and comparisons. I suspect there will be very little observable difference, but it's good to get things right!

Cheers MichaelW
