Spelling:

In French, German and Spanish words may be searched for in either old or modern spelling. The text as keyed has been coded to record modern spelling alongside original spelling. As a general rule the most effective way to search French, German or Spanish text will be to use modern spelling.

Latin has been keyed in the original spelling, with a modest degree of coding for possible variant spellings: e.g. relligione / religione; coelum / caelum.
