Kindle error searching for the word "Should"

I'm a new user and don't seem to find a posting for this...

I'm publishing my first eBook for the Kindle and using Mobipocket Creator to create the PRC and then copy to the Kindle via USB cable for testing. The source file is computer-generated HTML (about 600,000 lines).

The application is a concordance which uses the Dictionary Search feature (<idx:entry>). When searching for the word "should", the Kindle renders an error box containing the message: "The selected item could not be opened. If you purchased this item from Amazon, delete the item and download it from Archived Items." The only option in the error box is to go back to "home" and start over.

If I remove "should" from my source HTML, the error disappears and all is well.

This same error occurs with the word "should" in The New Oxford American Dictionary and the Oxford Dictionary of English.

The error seems to be intermittent ... when it fails with my app, it also fails on the two Oxfords. When one works, they all do.

Any ideas? THANK YOU!

Thanks to all for the kind welcomes and advice. I've posted in the Kindle sub forum; hope this isn't too much "noise in the channel" with the same posting to several forums.

I appreciate that this is such a welcoming place to be.
