CanLII, the free Canadian Legal Information Institute, announced search enhancements
yesterday that include:
- RSS feeds for caselaw search results
- better search term highlighting when proximity operators are used: up to now, when proximity operators such as /n, /s or /p were used, all of the keywords used were highlighted in results. From now on, only those occurrences of keywords that match a query are highlighted. As the announcement states: "For instance, if your query is common-law /3 partners, only occurrences of 'common-law' and 'partners' that are separated by three terms or less in the document will be highlighted."
