The searches are case insensitive (ex: a search for Marshmallow will give the same results as searches for marshmallow or marshMallow).
Tip: the favorable words box could contain special punctuation characters as explained here. Also note that words of three or fewer characters are not indexed. There is also this list of stopwords that don't get indexed. Searching for words of three characters or less or for stopwords will not match anything in the database. Additionally, words appearing in 50% or more of the ocr'ed patents are not indexed. Words like Patent or phrases like 'Patent Office' would not be searchable. These are limitations of MySQL, the underlying free database used here.
