Bug 4598: Order of title recognition and bold / italic rendering should be reversed

Exact search for *G''t* etc. should be possible regardles how google search works.

The actual results return false positives. The bug's url should identify / find

This isn't something that can be done very efficiently, and is at best a niche issue. Toolserver tools should be able to take care of this adequately for now.
