Thanks John; that information is helpful.
So extended filtering is the only option for compatibility. I still need to research which search engines use extended filtering, however. Maybe Frank (Ellerman) will have something to say on this; can we just wait for his input? --Or else for some  feedback from people who know more about the search engines.   Thanks again.
