Lets say you bookmarked http://www.yahoo.com/ a while ago. If you go to
that URL and tag it again today, the little box that pops up will have
your existing title/notes/tags already filled in. It'll also have a note
saying "originally posted on [date]". If you change the tags,
del.icio.us will just update that information on your original bookmark.
But if today you go to http://www.yahoo.com/index.html and tag it,
del.icio.us will think that's a new URL and will let you bookmark it
separately from http://www.yahoo.com/.
The search engine only has a little support for partial matches right now

I've been using del.icio.us for a couple of weeks now and liking it a
Two things though I'm having an issue with...
One is when I tag a site... if I've already tagged that site before, it
adds it again (in duplicate). Is there no way for it to tell me that
the URL I'm bookmarking is already added?
Lastly, when I'm doing a search, is there a way to get it recognize a
partial match? For example, I have a bookmarked item that has the
word "Mindstorms" in it. I didn't remember that the name was pleurel,
so when I searched I only typed "Mindstorm" and it didn't find anything.
Is there a way to allow partial matches or for it to make best guesses?
