Extended [EXT] search
To find results having different words on different pages within one web site, add an uppercase EXT between the terms. This search can be useful when AND search produced no results, which means that all searched words do not occur on one web page together. EXT search will find websites where your search terms located on different pages.
For example, here's how to search for websites containing terms "Leather Sofa" and Dundas anywhere within a site (these words do not occur together in one article but occur in different pages)
If you search for words (not complex expressions) within web site, you may use brackets to produce the same result. For example, here's how to search for websites containing terms Esposito and 1897 anywhere within a site (these words do not occur together in one article but occur in different pages)
