Subject Lucene search doesn't work with special characters
Date Wed, 25 Aug 2004 14:07:28 GMT

There seems to be a problem with special characters and Lucene-Search:
Don't know if this is a browser-setting problem or can be resolved 
within Lucene/Forrest.

Entering the Word 'Überblick' in the lucene-search gives the URL:
which results in:
   Your search for Überblick returned no results.

Setting queryString=Überblick (manually) gives results and the URL now 

(Entering Überblick in the search field results in:
  Your search for Überblick returned no results.)

This happens in MSIE and firefox.

Thanks for any hints

P.S. I hope my mail settings will send all the special
characters correctly! I used the German umlauts as special
characters, the URL-%-encoding should give you an idea.
