h1. Wildcards 

 Wildcard characters are special characters that are interpreted when comparing text. 

 There are three meaningful wildcard characters: 

 <notextile>? ? - matches a single character 
 * - matches everything (including nothing) 
 & - matches a whole word if used alone</notextile> alone 

 For example the expression "t*s a *?t" matches the string "this is a text" 

 If & is not used alone it matches the plain text '&' character 

 "test &" matches "test this" or "test that" 

 "test &his" matches only "test &his" 

 "test thi&" matches only "test thi&" 

 "test th&s" matches only "test th&s"
