This is a small "no-brainer" enhancement: Add a separator parameter to VarMETASEARCH variable.


  • The doc of the topic="" parameter did not match the implementation. I fixed the docs: Current topic is used, not all topics in a web.
  • The default separator was a newline if the format="" was supplied, and a space if the format="" was not supplied. It now defaults consistently to a newline, which is the same as the default SEARCH separator.
