    My point is that, 3-rd prefix-byte ("abbreviation"-2) is necessary,
    which will convert lower-case letters into "small capitals"
    (as i understand, there is no cases,
    when only first letter of a word is "small capitals",
    i.e. 4-th prefix-byte "own name"-2 is redundant).

    Computer in both field of rational database and full-text database
    must compare only 'sense' itself of text.
    Let me refer once again to rough equality of strings

    If some letter has different image in beginning/middle/end of a word,
    then algorithm of drafting must display different image for identical
    binary code (of letter).
