PubMed's Automatic Term Mapping being enhanced soon -- perhaps as early as 
next week. Essentially, the change is:

"If a searcher's query includes an untagged term that maps to a MeSH term, 
the term will be searched as the MeSH term as well as a Text Word."

A NLM Technical Bulletin article was published on November 10, 2004, 
announcing this enhancement to PubMed's automatic term mapping. This will 
also be useful for in-process articles that are not yet indexed .

Please see the article for details:
