How about a '/'?  Thus searching for "Main/ apple" would find
all occurrences of "apple" in the Main group.  Searching for=20
"Main/apple" would look for "Main/apple".


mmm maybe. So main/ returns pages in Main that contain a space and main. =
returns all pages in Main plus any pages in other groups that refer to =
main. (I sorta like being able to omit the space and write main;apple to =
look for apple in Main group...)

For me, main;apple and main/apple involve less cognitive conflict than =
main/ apple and main/apple.
