I have put, i the And section:

"There is no AND character other than an optional space, nor is one
necessary. Because StrongED tests each element in the search expression in
sequence, the search is only completed and marked as a find when every
element is tested True - so the whole string of elements is in practice
ANDed. Element 1 AND Element 2 AND etc. makes a Match."

Which I thought less likely to confuse.
