Region :: the search command

Yahoo's search engine and Live Searches' allows user to search for pages published from servers in certain regions. It is Yahoo which uses region as a search command, Live Search uses the search command location. This Search Commands* page lists all the known regions. Yahoo deals with wide area regions and includes the Mediterranean as a region even though Europe and Africa are both covered (technically, the Mediterranean is a sea and it is unlikely many servers are situated there!). The Microsoft search engine deals with smaller areas such as countries.
