There is a bug in the Web of Science wildcard search.

TS=("hydro$power") is not supposed to give results according to the
help, but it does. I.e., the quotes are ignored.

TS=(hydro$power) should match "hydro-power", "hydro power" and
"hydropower", but it doesn't. It appears to match only "hydropower".

The same goes for (hydro*power).
