A hybrid search in the Online Knowledge Center enables search for the content of linked documents in the metadata. In this paper, we present design issues for the combined search of unstructured data linked in semistructured data. We describe the problems of the initial design for the metadata storage and inquiry performance, and suggest a solution under a specific environment – the newsgroup service of the Online Knowledge Center system.
