  99. <p>...that you can use Dependent Fields to combine multiple separated fields
  100. into a single field. Just select the type Dependent and use a description
  101. similar to "Value: %{fielda}%{fieldb}" where %{...} gets replaced with the
  102. appropriate field value. This is useful to collect multiple values in a
  103. single field, e.g. for better grouping, and to combine fields of different
  104. types by respecting proper sorting at the same time. Consider for example
  105. a number field followed by a text subfield with entries 3b, 14a.</p>
