Package: aptitude-doc-en
Version: 0.8.10-9
File: /usr/share/doc/aptitude/html/en/ch02s05s01.html

In Customizing the package list, We read

%t	Archive	10	Yes	The archive in which the package is found.

But it turns out that is only shows you the first,

# aptitude show emacs
Archive: experimental, now

# set emacs
# aptitude --disable-columns  -F %99t# search ~i~n$@$|s

So on /usr/share/doc/aptitude/html/en/ch02s05s01.html remember to
mention only the first archive is shown with %t.
