Kindle for PC ignores multi word dictionary idx entries

Hello,

I just noticed that Kindle for PC search does not recognize multi word entries like this

PHP Code:
<idx:entry><idx:orth><a name="FAR HOUSE"><h2>FAR HOUSE</h2></a></idx:orth>
    <
p>The marginal explanation in the Revised Version (British and Americanof Beth-merhak (beth ha-merchaq"house of distance"), which is given in the text of <a href="#2Sam.15.17">2Sa 15:17</ainstead of "a place that was far off."</p>
    <
p>See <a href="#BETH-MERHAK">BETH-MERHAK</a>.</p></idx:entry
This example was given here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=162696.

Kindle for PC does not show any results for FAR, or FAR HOUSE at all. Is this the case for Kindle devices as well? Kindle cannot handle multi word idx orth dictionary entries?

You can also try searching for "moral hazard" in the default New Oxford dict.

The PW handles multi-word dictionary lookups just fine. If you tap and hold a word that's part of a dictionary "phrase", the selection automatically expands to include the entire phrase.
