    Yield Difference Vs. VFWIX?

    Anyone have an insight into the huge yield difference between Total Intl and VFWIX - FTSE All-World Ex- US? While Total Intl was 3.1% at 7/31, VFWIX was under 1%.

    Suppposedly very similar funds, with VFWIX a true total international (including Canada), also cap weighted, of individual stocks.

    Asking Vanguard is useless - "Yields on international stocks are too variable for comparision to be valid" - OK, but why 3X the yield?
