Luc If you are using Mathematica 5.1> look into the ClusterAnalysis. Particularly the EditDistance[s1,s2]. I think this is the Levenstein Function. I have not used EditDistance in Mathematica (don't even know if it takes options) but the Levenstein Function works well for small amount of text. I think the new Combinatorica package contains a Longest Common Substring function. So I would look there also.
