That description is too vague. Could you provide a couple of examples of 
index text and queries and what you expect those queries to match.

If you simply want to query for "*" and "?" in "string" fields, escape them 
with a backslash. But if you want to escape them in "text" fields, be sure 
to use an analyzer that preserves them since they generally will be treated 
as spaces.

Subject: Wildcard in a text field

I'm looking for a way of making a query on words which contain wildcards
(* or ?). In general, we use wildcards in query, not in the text. I
haven't find anything in Lucene to build that.
