    Description

      Given text of: "x y z x z x a"
      With a query of: spanNear([spanNear([text:x, text:y, text:z], 0, true), text:a], 10, false)
      Resulting highlight: <B>x</B> <B>y</B> <B>z</B> <B>x</B> <B>z</B> <B>x</B> <B>a</B>
      Expected highlight: <B>x</B> <B>y</B> <B>z</B> x z x <B>a</B>

      This is caused because WeightedSpanTermExtractor.extractWeightedSpanTerms takes the SpanQuery and flattens all terms and uses the positions from the outermost SpanNear clause (ignoring the nested SpanNear positions). I believe this could be resolved with a little recursion - walking the span query tree in the extractWeightedSpanTerms method.
