    221221=== Paging : <start> and <howMany> ===  
    222 The optional elements <start> and <howMany> control which records from the result set should be returned (although the total number of hits is always returned as a number to aid with paging in clients). If <start> is omitted, the default value used is 1 (i.e. the first record). If <howMany> is omitted, the default number of records returned is 30.
