I went to the page about the schwa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schwa) and copied a
schwa (ə) and then copied the schwa into the search and searched for it. The search
indicated that I had searched for "ə" and not a schwa at all, and also didn't find
the page about the schwa.
The problem is that the search engine has no support for HTML entities. The search engine
should probably convert from the native encoding to UTF-8, and also normalize all entities to
UTF-8 also for indexing and searching purposes.
related to character encoding see also
bug 2896: Search doesn't find (accent problem? indexing problem?)
Searching for special characters like "ə" does work now!
Thus, I close this bug.
Please see bug 4601 comment 2
Bug 4601: Exact search for titles using php meta / escape characters
Are these bug dependent? (I can not see the character specified above with
this PC because of missing fonts.)
Are "OS" and "Hardware" set properly?
